The third in the series of the PR True Or False podcast series addresses the subject, "Email is broken as a PR communications tool". Phil Szomszor and Austin Brailey come from different perspectives on this subject, so what is the verdict this week: true or false?

This week we've also taken the views of communications professionals via LinkedIn and Twitter.

Andy Turner writes:

"Email is broken, for sure, and I'm pleased to see Phil you didn't say it was dead, as quite a few other people seem to believe. In my view, the same assertion could be made for any other form of marketing communication: take your pick from 1:1 networking, DM, experiential, social, etc, and any form of PR-specific comms activity. My point here is that the perfect tool doesn't exist and email done badly is no different to any other form of communication done badly."
