The Tip Off takes listeners behind the scenes of some amazing investigative journalism. There are car chases, slammed doors, terrorist cells, meetings in dimly lit bars and cafes, wrangling with despotic regimes and much more. So if you love a real-life detective story, this is the show for you!
Hosted by Maeve McClenaghan, the Tip Off was born out of a love of investigative journalism. Set against the backdrop of today’s fears about “fake news” the Tip Off gives audiences insights into what real, serious journalism looks and sounds like.
One of host McClenaghan’s favorite episodes (well two episodes) is Web of Death. The two-parter goes behind the scenes with Buzzfeed to look at the stories they did on Russian spies who died in the UK. Check out part 1 and part 2!
