Jenny has probably become the first MP to launch her own series of podcasts through which anyone can hear her chat to constituents about the issues that concern them.
The introductory – and highly experimental -- episode of “At the Kitchen Table” is now available to download from iTunes.
In it, she and a Labour Party volunteer discuss her work and how she splits her week between Westminster and her Darlington home. She also touches on the cuts to services which have been forced on Darlington Council by the Government.
“It’s a new way of getting across to constituents directly,” said Jenny. “The first podcast is a bit of an experiment because we’re new to this technology and didn’t really know how to go about it. But we’re learning and we’ll get better.
“Many thanks to Billy Floyd and Catharine McLaren for their technical expertise in putting this together.”
