Jonathan Carr-West and Ingrid Koehler catch you up on the latest developments at LGIU. Plus, there is a new interview with Danil Mikhailov, an expert on misinformation who talks about the prevalence of misinformation in our communities, democracy and public health conversations and what councils can do about it. We also hear a snippet from our recent homelessness webinar, which featured Dame Louise Casey as a guest speaker. Finally, we announce the opening of nominations for Cllr Awards and talk about what’s next for our Post-Covid Councils work.
