Third Sector Podcast: Kids Company - where are we now?

The second weekly episode of the Third Sector podcast looks at the collapse of the infamous charity and what happened next

In the Third Sector Podcast's second weekly episode, editor Emily Burt and features and analysis writer Rebecca Cooney look at Kids Company.

When Kids Company collapsed in 2015, it sent shockwaves through the charity sector.

Camila Batmanghelijdh, the founder and former chief executive of the now defunct children’s charity, along with former trustees of the charity, have appeared in court in recent weeks as the Official Receiver seeks to disqualify them from serving as company directors for their roles in the collapse of the charity. 
Rebecca and Emily chat about the history and legacy of that charity, and then we hear from Third Sector’s senior reporter Stephen Delahunty, who has been in court at various points throughout the case. 
He explains what the issues are and how the case has progressed over the past nine weeks. 
And Emily shares a good news story as a mini coronavirus care package. 
This week, it's the discovery of a previously unknown species of beaked whale off the coast of Mexico on a research voyage led by the non-profit organisation the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.
