LGiU Fortnightly is our new podcast, bringing you the latest news from the world of local government. We update you on the key events from the past fortnight, as well as news from us and our members, so you’re always in the loop. We’re always looking for more ways to bring you the information you need in a way that works around your busy schedule – let us know what you think by tweeting us @LGiU.

In a world obsessed with data (big data, open data, personal data, data hacking…) Ingrid Koehler and Jennifer Glover guide you through the quagmire – from a local government perspective.

Ingrid reports live from Democracy Club’s election data hackathon, where volunteers helped citizens access the information they need to make informed voting decisions. Later, Jonathan joins us to discuss the ‘dark side’ of data exposed by the recent Cambridge Analytica scandal and what this means for local politics. Plus our regular roundup of local government news,  recent LGiU briefings and events.
