Episode Info

We’re talking about International Day of the Girl - and there’s some unpleasant stats we’ll be dealing with. DSC gave the Charity Commission a proper hammering in the press. It’s just like those design twitter fights, but everyone is more polite, and we’re looking into a new DfE report on the effect social media has on mental health.

And we have a guest with us today!
