In Episode 28 – recorded at HeadStuff HQ – Alison meets journalist, Ellen Coyne. Ellen tells Alison about being rejected by politicians, what it’s like doing an undercover investigation and carries off a frighteningly convincing exchange as the Minister for Women. Ellen is a senior journalist at the Irish Edition of The Times (UK). Read one of a number of Ellen’s articles on unregulated pregnancy counselling agencies here.
