I'm John Pettigrew - a hat wearer, a recovering editor and the creator of Futureproofs.

For episode 50, I've looked back at the past year of interviews and put together a compilation of some of the best bits - or, at least, some memorable ones for me! In this episode, I look back at why people set up a publishing business, whether it's a small publisher, a tech business or something else. Reasons range from being made redundant, through frustration with how the industry works, to a simple passion for doing something else.

This episode features extracts from interviews with Emma Barnes (episode 3), Alison Jones (episode 7), Ken Jones (episode 8), Bec Evans (episode 17), Justo Hidalgo (episode 18), Nancy Roberts (episode 20), Kate Wilson (episode 22), John Bond (episode 28) and Dominique Raccah (episode 29).
