Hacks & Flaks

Welcome to Hacks and Flaks, the only series where you'll get the inside scoop on how journalist hacks and the flaks of government and business work behind the scenes to decide which stories you'll be reading with your morning coffee and perhaps more importantly, how they keep certain headlines off the front pages.

What happens if a public figure is the subject of a salacious story? When does a scandal make or break a career? And how do you really know what is, or isn't fake news?

All these subjects and a whole lot more will be explored by host Petrie Hosken and a regular panel of hacks and flaks, ready to spill the beans, and tell us how the sausage gets made.

Host: Petrie Hosken

Panel: Giles Kenningham, Andrew MacDougall and Mick Booker

Produced by Amanda Redman
