In the public interest

This episode will explore the role of female journalists and editors and their challenges in breaking stories in the public interest – particularly when the stories may challenge the traditional status quo and power. This episode features Jenna Cairney, the first female editor of Tasmania’s newspaper The Mercury and ABC Investigative Journalist Emily Baker.

Frank and fearless is the ability to have a voice on important issues without fear of retribution. To stand up and say something is wrong without being labelled difficult or sidelined from the discussion. To contribute to a society that embraces debate and is open to wanting to hear from those who raise the sticky, uncomfortable issues, the often inconvenient truths.

Hosted by Kym Goodes, Frank and Fearless is a podcast about the strength of voice of women, speaking up and leading the discussions on important issues that impact Tasmania. The term frank and fearless originates from the public service and how an apolitical, professional public service provides impartial advice to the government of the day as a key feature of the Westminster system.
