Quiet News Day Podcast 80

18 May

Hello,

Welcome to Quiet News Day Episode 80 – not too far off the big 100 episode milestone now and to help us get there we have a line up of the latest PR, Journalism and Social Media News that – tactical voting aside – would be guaranteed to knock Azerbaijan off their Eurovision throne.

Side swerving the nil points, Scott Douglas and Peter Laing explore the latest Facebook scandal, a popular Scottish journalist’s move into the world of PR and ask just how valuable twitter is when it comes to customer service.

So fly your flags high and get behind us – as ever our show notes contain links to all the stories discussed.
