As we saw in Italy earlier this month, content-related conferences tend to run on trends and themes. The Perugia International Journalism Festival this year focused on Trump and the battle again fake news, while the FIPP conference in Berlin last month looked at fake news and Germany’s controversial response. So I arrived in Copenhagen for #DME17 expecting […]
The strain on the news industry has been harshly felt in the local press, and barely a week passes without reports of yet another regional publisher closing its doors. However, as we’ve been finding out on our blog this week, it’s not all doom and gloom.
There can be few festivals on the planet quite like the Perugia International Journalism Festival. It’s one of those rare industry events that successfully crosses over into being something, somehow, for everybody. It’s a real festival of the mind, full of fascinating insights that seem as though they’d be edifying to anyone with even a passing interest […]

“I feel like everyone’s podcasting and nobody’s podlistening” was the quip accompanying a cartoon in The New Yorker recently. It feels like the podcast has recently been moved from the dusty corner of many newsrooms to become a much-lauded feature, and it’s easy to dismiss this as the latest attempts by newsrooms to pin their colors to the mast of any passing ship, but just as the blog was once branded a self-indulgent tool used only for recording daily mundanities, all it took was the right packaging and vision for it to become an essential part of many peoples’ daily dose of information and news.
