This week Media Voices’ Chris Sutcliffe takes an in-depth look at the realities of freelance journalism in 2020.
We hear from journalists and academics about everything from remuneration to gaining skills to mental health, in order to provide both a celebration of the upsides of freelancing and an examination of its pitfalls.
Featuring insights from Anna Codrea-Rado, Marie Le Conte, Dr. Paul Lashmar, Sian Meades-Williams, Nicola Slawson and Jenny Stallard, this episode is a one-off podumentary special focusing on the importance of freelance journalists to the news industry in the UK.
