The logic of joining forces on big, important and expensive-to-produce stories is hard to argue with. In a time of shrinking news budgets and resources, there’s even more of a need for deeply reported investigations that explain and expose increasingly complex news stories.

Please note, due to a technical error, only the second half of this session was recorded. You can see the live blog below to catch up on the first half, and we apologize for the issue.
