Media Voices podcast: The New Statesman's digital editor Jasper Jackson on paywall strategy

In this week’s episode we hear from the New Statesman’s digital editor Jasper Jackson about the circumstances that led the popular current affairs magazine to launch a paywall, how the team decided on digital-only extras to lure potential subscribers across, and what the widespread adoption of paywalls says about the state of the news media.

In the news roundup Chris and Peter discuss The London Evening Standard’s £10m loss under its editor George Osborne, whether a news and entertainment bundle can work for Apple, and the great news that Mediargh has returned from hiatus.

Media Voices will be on the road! The team are recording a live show and presenting a podcasting masterclass at Magfest this September. For more information or to book your place, visit
