Behind the scenes series with Independence Live continues

IN this week's instalment of our series offering readers an insight into the CommonSpace newsroom we chat to journalists Nathaneal Williams and David Jamieson, and editor Angela Haggerty and Kevin Gibney chat with columnist James McEnaney.

Our newest reporter Nathanael Williams talks about his coverage of the Pensions Conference at the Women’s Centre in Maryhill yesterday, and David Jamieson manages to tear himself away from a story for a few minutes to talk about the upcoming Radical Independece conference on Saturday. We also had a surprise guest this week in the form of CommonSpace columnist James McEnaney, who dropped by the office and spoke to Angela Haggerty and Independence Live’s Kevin Gibney about his recent work looking at education policy.

Through this feature, we hope to give you an insight into how we make decisions at CommonSpace and how reporters approach their work. We also hope it will encourage our readers to get in touch with us with any feedback, suggestions, ideas or even contacts that they might have for stories we're working on.
