Shownotes

Trust is an essential part of journalism. In this episode, we find out why it's important and what you can do as a freelance journalist to gain it. We talk to Steve Nowottny, an editor from FullFact, who discusses how his work exposes and counters the harm false information can cause, and Jennifer Sizeland, a UK-based freelance journalist, who talks to us about how journalists can build trust with their sources.
