Next time anyone tells you Australia should have followed Sweden's approach... they just passed the USA for cases/capita and that's (sadly) a very scary curve. 👏🏻 Australia (special shout out to Victorians!) for a huge, brilliant team effort so far.

Outstanding on the struggles of Broken Hill’s proud Barrier Truth newspaper. Incredible history, pictures & local stories. The decline of rural and regional media is a crisis in Australia, possibly worse than any other developed nation.

Today I managed to fit a training session into one hour, which was likened to “drinking from a fire hose” 🤣. There really is that much to talk about! Get in touch if your newsroom is keen to learn the latest in digital tools & tricks (I recommend two hours) 😝.
