Should Channel 4 be privatised?

13 min listen

There has been a wave of backlash against the government’s announcement that it intends to privatise Channel 4. What’s behind their decision? Some argue it could be politically motivated given that Channel 4 has historically been a left-leaning news organisation. 

Also on the podcast, Iain Anderson has resigned as the UK’s LQBTQ business champion over the government’s u-turn on trans conversation therapy. He said the decision to exclude trans people from the conversion therapy ban was ‘deeply damaging’. 

All to be discussed as Cindy Yu talks to Isabel Hardman and Katy Balls.
