The podcast that explores why recent news in the media business matters to people who love media
You’ve already heard what happened this week, but we take the next steps of explaining why it matters and why you should care. This isn’t a place of pontificating and empty predictions, but of getting to the meat of what is going on in media today and the implications for media businesses and media consumers. Knowledgeable outsiders, Alex, a journalist, and Amanda, a professor, consider emerging changes without a stake in the disruptions to explore why the transformative shifts experienced by media today matter to you.
