The Media Podcast – launching 6th June

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.

 

THE PLAN

I have a new podcast feed for you to subscribe to: http://feeds.feedburner.com/themediapodcast

Open it in your podcast app or subscribe through iTunes or Stitcher. Or Soundcloud. We’re catering for them all. On Friday, you’ll have a new episode delivered automatically. Simple.

However…

 

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.

 

WHAT NOW?

Subscribe. Then listen to the first episode on Friday, 6th June.

  1. I use the tune in radio ap to listen to live streams and podcasts but name The Media Podcast isn’t coming up as an option to listen to or choose as a favorite (the old Guardian one did). Can you look into this? I don’t understand the backside or technology but would love to use the ap to listen to your very interesting and witty discussions of the media.

    • Hi Margaret – thanks for spotting this. I’ve submitted the feed to TuneIn and hopefully they can sort that out for us. Will let you know when it’s up and running!
