Ok, former Media Talk listeners… here’s the plan. We’re doing a new podcast and it’s called, imaginatively, The Media Podcast.
I say new, but you’ll barely notice the difference: John is presenting, all the usual suspects will offer their analysis… so aside from the name, it’s business as usual.
I have a new podcast feed for you to subscribe to: http://feeds.feedburner.com/themediapodcast
THERE IS A SLIGHT PROBLEM
To make this a sustainable venture, we need to cover our overheads. And that means we need to find some money.
THE 6-WEEK TRIAL
We’re going to do this for six weeks, and during that time we’re going to run a crowdfunding campaign where listeners and businesses can donate. If you’re new to crowdfunding, that’s not a problem, we’re going to go through it all once we’re up and running. We also have a target. If we reach it, the programme continues for six months. If we miss it, everyone’s money is returned, the podcast closes and no-one speaks of this experiment ever again.
Subscribe. Then listen to the first episode on Friday, 6th June.
