Ours is the Information Age. In other epochs, humans fashioned their most important tools from stone, iron and bronze. Today, we build with information.

Information, though, is neither solid rock nor unyielding metal. The elements of its composition are accuracy and evidence-based reporting.

In the final weeks of the year, CCC’s podcast series is looking back at the past twelve months.

In this third episode of a three-part review for 2020, three takes on information illuminate the golden rule that sources matter – and the more, the better.

Special guests include journalist/filmmaker Anita Makri; Toby Green, co-founder, Coherent Digital; and Bodour Al Qasimi, co-founder, PublisHer, and president, International Publishers Association.

“In the Information Age, public policy and personal practice depend on the hard principles of accuracy and evidence-based reporting,” says CCC’s Chris Kenneally. “Less substantial yet equally essential are concepts of trust and empathy.

“A possible lesson drawn from the COVID-19 crisis this year is to seek balance. Moderation in all things, including information.”
