Description

What happens when you cross a professional news report on a ship stuck in the Suez Canal with a sea shanty? The answer is one of BBC visual journalist Sophia Smith Galer’s biggest hits on TikTok. Sophia joins us to talk about a new generation of journalists who emphasise their own personality and identity, and she gives us insights into her social media toolkit, what it's like to cover sensitive topics like religion on social platforms, and why we should all try to be less negative and pessimistic online.


This season, our interviews are recorded live on Twitter Spaces, look out for details of future live shows on our Twitter accounts, below:
