This week, PPA Scotland business manager Laura Dunlop shares her excitement for this year’s Magfest conference and the launch of the first Edinburgh International Magazine Festival. She also explains why magazines absolutely still matter and might even help us change the world.
In the news round-up, Peter and Esther are joined by guest host Alison Warner, a jobbing B2B and brand journalist, and magazine lecturer at the University of Roehampton. We look at why there have been queues round the block in New York to get hold of a print magazine, whether other platforms could adopt Pinterest’s tactics for combating health misinformation, and Monocle’s new shop in Hong Kong airport. Alison and Peter both have doubts about the BBC’s plans to launch an Alexa rival that could understand regional accents.
