Media Voices podcast: Financial Times exec on using engagement metrics to launch new products
In the news round-up the gang attempts the first-ever Media Voices Blitzcast, rounding up as many news items as they can in two minutes each. Among other things, they examine changes to Wired and the FT’s paywall strategies, disappointing news for BuzzFeed and the Daily Mail, and a discussion on diversity in the media. The team burns 30 seconds with a discussion of Peter’s pelvic floor muscles.
What the Media Voices team is reading:
• How to survive the media apocalypse, via Wired.
• The scary tale of the Washington Post’s counter-sting investigation, via WaPo.
• Killing TIME: Requiem for an Empire, via Josh Quittner.
