This week Scott Douglas is off on holiday leaving Peter Laing to hold the fort. But keeping him company and slipping into the co-host chair is Young Student Journalist of the Year winner Alan Robertson.
The pair delve into the delights of social media, journalism and public relations in a podcast which mixes the views of the experienced journalist and the new.
Top of the agenda is an interview with Craig McGill, managing director of social media firm Contently Managed, who discusses brand journalism and his new recruit Iain Hepburn. Next up is a topic which will have Mr Douglas’ ears pricked wherever he is as the duo discusses Twitter leaks by celebrities and the plans of the BBC to reign in what stars are allowed to tweet. And as Alan admits that he is a newbie to the world of Twitter discussions move onto the nation’s fear of communications technology. Rounding off the podcast is a look to the future of journalism with some insights from Charles McGee.
And here are all of the links to the topics discussed in today’s show.
