Tortoise is an audio-first newsroom devoted to Slow News, based in London, UK.
We take news slowly. We investigate, we tell stories that really matter, and we take time to see the full picture.
Our daily podcast The Sensemaker focuses on one story each day to make sense of the world. In our flagship investigative show The Slow Newscast we focus on the stories each week that really matter in the UK and around the world. There’s a host of award winning, must-listen investigative series: Sweet Bobby, Hoaxed, Londongrad and Pig Iron are our listeners' favourites, so if you’re new to Tortoise they’re a good place to start.
