Open News

As we start planning for reopening, we’ll be using our weekly Open News ThinkIns in May to test out different ways of doing ‘hybrid’ ThinkIns.

This week, instead of Zoom, we’re giving ‘Twitter Spaces’ a go. It’s audio only, and there’s no need to book. Make sure you’re following Tortoise on Twitter, then just open Twitter at one o’clock and you’ll see Tortoise ‘live’ at the top of your feed. As ever, if you get stuck email us on

As always, we’ll use this hour to grapple with the live news agenda, to identify what matters, what’s missing and what focused Tortoise reporting and analysis could add. If you have a new story idea or a new angle on an old one, this is your chance to make your pitch.
