In the first Alistair gave an interview on the flagship current affairs radio programme Good Morning Scotland. He discussed the social role of expert opinion and its future, and questioned whether e-pundits – such as bloggers and other online voices – will be able to fulfil the vital social functions of the press effectively. The interview is available on iPlayer at 1:47:35 into the programme for one week from the date of broadcast, i.e. until Wednesday 20th February 2013. The second broadcast is a short video about the project on the Edinburgh Napier YouTube channel.
