Apologies as the podcast is slightly late this week but it is certainly worth waiting for. Scott Douglas has returned from his holidays but now Peter Laing has decided to escape. But do not despair Craig McGill from Contently Managed had stepped up to the task and the pair delve into this week’s journalism, PR and social media news.

Scott has managed to miss two of the biggest media stories of the past year including the News of the World phone hacking scandal and the launch of Google+, Google’s very own social networking site.  So this week the pair discuss the latest developments concerning Rupert Murdoch and his company and how the PR sector may be benefitting from the scandal.
