From regional newspapers fronting campaigns on local issues to national press, this week’s podcast looks at some of the approaches taken by those experienced in campaigning journalism, and hears about different strategies as well as how to use petition sites such as Change.org to research campaigns and gather public support.

The podcast hears from:

  • Clare Sambrook, author and journalist, part of End Child Detention Now campaign, and a former winner of awards including the Paul Foot Award
  • Katherine Sladdon, senior campaigner, Change.org
  • Ian Murray, editor-in-chief, Southern Daily Echo and Newsquest publications in Hampshire

Here are links to some of the campaigns mentioned in the podcast:
