We Need to Talk About...

The Guardian

Vicky Frost, the Guardian’s deputy membership editor, will be working with Guardian podcast producers Stuart Silver and Rowan Slaney to bring you a monthly podcast full of conversation with our members, readers, journalist, and experts, to discuss the big news issues of the moment alongside the topics you feel are under-reported or deserve more attention. Most importantly, we’ll be featuring your questions. You can submit questions to me via email at weneedtotalkabout@theguardian.com. Do please leave us your phone number, whichever way you send your question – we might like to give you a ring, chew it over, and record it. For those who dive straight into the comments on the website, or go first to the letters section, this idea that readers have interesting and illuminating contributions to make to the Guardian will hardly be news. But through Membership we’ve been looking for ways to amplify Members’ voices, give them more active participation in the Guardian, and bring journalists and readers closer together
