Episode 164: COVID-19 From All Angles, Part 1

In part one of this two-part AudioMag series on COVID-19 responses, Magazines Canada interviews members about how COVID-19 has impacted their publications and their jobs.

We understand that this pandemic has brought unprecedented disruptions to the economy and daily life, and we hope to shed some insight into how your peers are responding and pivoting during these disruptions. Our producer Michael Brown conducted the interviews and they were recorded remotely, so please forgive any disruptions in audio quality.

In this episode, hear from Melissa Summerfield of Newcom Media, Jessie Johnston from Asparagus Magazine and Michele Gerard from Atlantic News as they share their experiences in publishing, production and being a retailer during COVID-19 shutdowns.

Listen to part two here, with Jocelyn Bell from Broadview, contributing writer Julia Métraux, and James Anderson of Reader’s Digest on editorial decisions, being a writer and advertising sales during COVID-19.
