In this week’s podcast we speak to experts in investigative journalism on how best to get started in the field. Aside from taking a course or getting some early work experience, both invaluable elements of training for a journalist on any beat, there are some skills, tools and qualities which every trainee should bear in mind.
We speak to:
- Christopher Hird, managing editor, Bureau of Investigative Journalism
- Paul Lewis, special projects editor, the Guardian
- Marshall Allen, investigative journalist, Pro Publica
