Maclean’s is moving from weekly to monthly, as Rogers Media scales back its print magazines. Co-host Paul Wells of the Toronto Star spent a long time working for Maclean’s. He joins Jesse to talk about whether this is smart business or the beginning of its slow death–and why it matters.

A few high profile journalists (including Paul) are leaving Twitter, opening up the conversation of where the medium stands and whether it’s necessary to a modern journalist.
