Beth Ashton, The Telegraph's head of social media, kindly invited me over to their offices to tell me about how they do... social media. Traditionally, The Tele's newspaper readers have been amongst the oldest in the UK, which should present a challenge to converting them into online readers. They've also got a metered paywall and Premium content t…
 
BBC Radio 4 Extra's Podcast Radio Hour has become another way to discover great podcasts, as well as an opportunity for some lucky podcasters to get heard on the radio.

Deez Links is "a dailyish link to cool shit happening in & around the media industry." Each day, Delia Cai - also Growth & Trends Editor at Buzzfeed - sends out one link. Just one link.

We've got a new season of Black Mirror on Netflix, so here are Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones to talk us through Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too, Smithereens and Striking Vipers. They also take the piss out of each other and make me LOL. Don't worry, there aren't any spoilers, so you're safe to listen before watching the season. It is, however, extr…

It's part two of my interview with Twitter's Director of Curation, Joanna Geary. She takes us through her career from working at The Guardian to starting out at Twitter in 2013, with loads of great insight on how the journalism industry has tried and tried and tried again to mould itself to the demands of the internet. Joanna's also got some great …
 
Joanna Geary started out as a print journalist in 2004 - as a business reporter on the Birmingham Post - and ended up in charge of Twitter's Curation team in 2017. That's a job and a company that didn't exist when she started her career. From blogging in Birmingham and using Facebook to find people on the scene of the 2007 Virginia Tech shooting, t…
 
Every freelancer I've interviewed for this podcast - or just met in the past 11.5 months of freelancing - has worn multiple work hats. It's just the way of things, as freelance consumer journalism is very unlikely to pay the bills to live in a major western city in 2019 AD. Talk to freelancers making decent money from content marketing, and they'll…

Two years ago, audio producer Lewis Raven Wallace was fired from his job at Marketplace, a radio programme made by American Public Media.

As a member of a marginalised group - Lewis is trans - he delves…

This episode's guest is ex-BBC journalist turned social media trainer and content strategist Sue Llewellyn of Ultra Social! You heard a bit from her on the International Women's Day compilation episode, but here she is on an episode of her very own, at long last... after I managed to screw up two of our recordings!

Freelance journalist, author and campaigner Anna Codrea-Rado is this episode's guest. I was lucky to meet Anna (Twitter: @annacod) at a journalism event about a week or so after my redundancy last May, because she is so positive, but also practical, about making a freelance career work. At the time, I was just about keeping the feelings of panic re…

"Just over 50% of journalists said they were 'overwhelmed' by information during their working day and wanted to 'explore solutions' to make it more manageable." That's the headline finding from John Crowley's survey on digital journalism and burnout, for the European Journalism Centre's News Impact Network. John's now a freelance digital journalis…
 
Well, this episode has got me nostalgic for London trains, tubes, bridges and underpasses that were covered in graffiti in the 90s. As one of the graffiti writers says in the incredible 1983 documentary Style Wars, that my guest David Speed mentions in this episode, once he'd tagged a subway carriage, it'd take his work all over the city, to people…
 
Digital strategist & journalist Laura Oliver (https://twitter.com/LauraOliver) is currently acting Head of Audience Growth at Vogue International, and was Head of Social and Community at The Guardian, until she went freelance two years ago, following voluntary redundancy.

British freelance journalist Jennifer O'Mahony (Twitter: https://twitter.com/jaomahony) is now based in West Africa - mostly in Dakar, Senegal - and her job would be much harder without Whatsapp. Technology leapt from the analogue age to smartphones in the area she covers, so contacts prefer Whatsapping, speaking on the phone, or meeting in person.…
 
I sat down with Charlie Brooker this week to profile him for New Statesman, here's the link to the piece: https://www.newstatesman.com/culture/tv-radio/2019/01/black-mirror-s-charlie-brooker-using-bandersnatch-politics-s-fantasy-isn-t We talked about Bandersnatch, politics, 80s music, how much his kids love the Alexa and Black Mirror Season 5. Well…
 
Sure, none of us have finished Bandersnatch yet, because none of us ever will. We're just going to have to live with that. One thing we'll all have noticed is that the themes of mental illness, therapy and medication are central to every path that Stefan Butler (Fionn Whitehead) takes through the game-film. He's clearly not well when we first meet …
 
Netflix has finally released the trailer for Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. What's a Black Mirror Event? Nobody knows, but looks like we'll be finding out at about 8am GMT tomorrow... that trailer looks pretty darn analogue, so the 1980s nostalgia is going to be strong. To help with the Season 5 anticipation, here's an interview I did with Charlie Bro…
 
I've known this episode's guest a long time, since we were both undergraduates at Oxford back in the Noughties. Oli Mason (https://twitter.com/moreolimason) went into making films, and he's made an impressive number over the decade since graduating. He's also been made redundant three times (same as me!), so he's very well-placed to talk about the …
 
It was a simple and inescapable choice back in spring 2015, wasn't it? Stability and strong government with incumbent Prime Minister David Cameron, or chaos with Ed Miliband. We, the British people, did not choose chaos with Ed Miliband. All the Brexit palaver has sent the political news cycle spinning faster than ever, but there's one politician w…
 
This week's guest is film critic Ryan Gilbey, who's a self-confessed "creature of print," as he started out on The Independent's film desk 24 years ago, after winning a competition. He now writes for The Guardian, The Sunday Times and New Statesman. We met back in 2006 when he was my tutor on a part-time Film Journalism course at the British Film I…
