Episode 2: The Right to Know

GavinIn the second episode of Adventures in Information, I talk to Gavin Sheridan.

Gavin is a journalist whose adventure in information has taken him from using freedom of information as part of the day job to setting up TheStory.ie, which broke stories using FOI, and on to being director of innovation at Storyful.

More recently Gavin has set up Right To Know, an NGO which has an interesting mission to make FOI requests and deal with reviews and appeals itself but also to assist individuals, organisations and journalists in dealing with FOI.

Gavin shares his experience and views on FOI and also explores the need for a high-level view on access to information – why freedom of information is important, and how information “needs to be liberated”.
