In episode 22 Jack is joined in studio by Gavin Sheridan, a Journalist pioneer, who has tirelessly campaigned for transparency among public bodies.

He created one of Ireland’s first blogs back in 2002 and has since been a leader in all things online related.

He took a risk and left his first full time job at the Irish Examiner to join Storyful. Gavin co-founded political website KildareStreet.com and TheStory.ie which combs through data and promotes transparency in public life.

Listen to hear more about Gavin’s fascinating discoveries through data and freedom of information requests.
