In June, we'll see whether the England men's football team can win the UEFA Nations League, continuing a remarkable turnaround in both public perception of the squad and their performances on the pitch. This began in last summer's World Cup, and Dr Pippa Grangehas some fascinating behind the scenes insights (p.24).

I'll be glued to the screen for the games. Will this do me harm? Debates around media use regularly hit the headlines, so we're delighted that Professor Andrew Przybylski (p.16) will front 'The Psychologist Presents...' at July's Latitude Festival. Przybylski has, along with Amy Orben and other colleagues, published excellent papers on the topic recently - showing how, in many ways,'screen time' is psychology's various 'crises' in microcosm.

Our regular Latitude appearances are one example of how we've built content, channels, and a community. Now we have more to do on strategy, structure and style. We need you - keep in touch!
