All the best chats happen out of the office.
In this podcast, Pugpig co-founder Jonny Kaldor joins interesting people in publishing for ambling walks through the streets of London, New York and beyond in order to try and find out what makes them tick. We cover everything from how they started out, what they love and hate about media and the many forces that are fundamentally changing the industry landscape right under out feet.
What will the future of publishing look like? God knows, but we'll talk about it anyway and we'll have fun while we do it...
Big thanks to Matt Prevett and Luke Croydon for helping produce the Out of Office theme tune!

    Out of Office with Alan Hunter

    Out of Office with Alan Hunter

    Welcome to Episode 11 of the Out of Office podcast, which I recorded in the summer of 2021 with Alan Hunter, former head of digital for The Times and The Sunday Times, where we walked around Alexandra Palace and talked about Alan’s days at News UK - his shift from journalist to digital guru, how print and digital have converged over recent years and how to build a world class digital news media team. 
    We also had a quick chat about something that comes up time and time again - which is the better model for digital news media, periodical editions or continuous feeds - or possibly even something in-between? Listen in and you’ll get Alan’s views and some insight into how they’ve approached this at the Times.
    Thanks again to Alan for being so generous with his time, and as always, if you have any suggestions on who you’d like me to walk and talk with, or if you have any feedback at all - just give me a shout - I’d love to hear from you…

    Out of Office with Matt Kelly (2)

    Out of Office with Matt Kelly (2)

    Welcome to Episode 10 of the Out of Office podcast, which I recorded with Matt Kelly, the founder of The New European, and which is the second of two bite sized chunks.
    In this first part (episode 9), we talked about Matt’s earlier days as a regional newspaper journalist, his views on the news media in general, his time at Archant, and the birth of The New European.
    In this second part, he takes us through how he secured the investment to buy his creation, The New European from Archant and how he’s new building the business pretty much from scratch (also with a little help from Team Pugpig of course!)
    It was a really interesting chat as we walked through Highbury Fields, on a typically British summer’s day, alternating from beautiful sunshine to torrential rainstorm from one minute to the next...

    Welcome to Episode 9 of the Out of Office podcast, which I recorded with Matt Kelly, the founder of The New European, and which I've split into two bite sized chunks.
    In this first part, we talk about Matt’s earlier days as a regional newspaper journalist, his views on the news media in general, his time at Archant, and the birth of The New European.
    In the second part (episode 10), he takes us through how he secured the investment to buy his creation, The New European from Archant and how he’s new building the business pretty much from scratch (also with a little help from Team Pugpig of course!)

    Out of Office with Justin Pearse

    Out of Office with Justin Pearse

    Welcome to Episode 8 of the Out of Office podcast, which I recorded with Justin Pearse in early January 2021
    Justin Pearse is first and foremost a writer, and currently the editor of new digital age (after having spent a number of years also editor of new media age, and soon to be launching e-commerce age). In between all that Justin was heading up branded content at The Drum and Digiday - so he’s been writing about media and marketing pretty much his whole career.
    We took a covid compliant walk around Kelsey Park in Beckenham and talked about trade publishing, about launching new media brands, about the continuing growth and importance of ecommerce to publishers and about how events are continuing to evolve now that we’re getting to grips with what works best in a world where we continue to be doing everything remotely.
    Just a little warning in advance that you’ll hear a mix of ducks, cars, children and maybe a certain amount of sniffing in the background on what was a chilly, damp January day in London, but hopefully they will just add a touch of texture to what was an extremely interesting conversation with Justin. Here we go…
    I suspect we’ll have a short hiatus now that at least in the UK we’re pretty much housebound, and I think this podcast works so much better when we’re talking face to face, but I hope to be back soonish with more walks and chats for you. If in the meantime there’s someone you’d like me to walk and talk with, or if you have any feedback at all - just give me a shout - I’d love to hear from you…

    Out of Office with Esther Kezia Thorpe

    Welcome to Episode 7 of the Out of Office podcast, which I recorded with Esther Kezia Thorpe in June 2020
    At the time of recording, Esther had recently left her role at Dennis publishing so that she could commit herself fully to her own consulting business and also to the ever growing media voices empire which now includes a daily media roundup newsletter, an annual podcast awards event and of course their own media voices podcast - all of which we cover in our conversation and all of which I would recommend you check out and sign up to if you haven’t already!
    I hope you enjoy it - as always, if you have any feedback do let me know...
    Jonny

    Out of Office with James Hewes

    Out of Office with James Hewes

    Welcome to Episode 6 of the Out of Office podcast, which I recorded with James Hewes, the President and CEO at FIPP (the international network for global media) a few months ago when we were all in lockdown.
    We chatted about the future of consumer magazine businesses and how the need to diversify is becoming ever more important. We also touched on live events and how they can survive in a world where large gatherings can’t come together - well timed given he’s just managed one of the biggest online events that the publishing industry has seen to date.
    In fact I’d recommend you heading to FIPP.com to have a look - there’s loads of great content on there, including a sneak preview of our very own 2020 state of the digital publishing market report in which we got to interview 40 execs from across the industry about what’s keeping them up at night and where they are focusing their effort in the coming year.
    I hope you enjoy it!
