This originally aired at Radio Memphis a couple of weeks ago. If you missed this incredible conversation, here’s your chance to catch up. Plus music from these two that happened right there in the studio. NEXT WEEK: Part 2
Are journalists allowing themselves to be the instruments of other people’s policy advocacy? A new American Press Institute study surveyed both journalists and funders to get a sense of their respective expectations. This week on The Pub, host Adam Ragusea talks with API’s Tom Rosenstiel about the study and its implications for how newsrooms should relate to their benefactors. Also on the show, NPR’s Jim Zarroli rejects the label of “he said, she said” journalism applied to his work on last week’s episode by NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen; and the one thing that men — yes, men — should never do at a Q&A session.
The alliance between Ted Cruz and John Kasich to stop Trump was over before it began, but it's just the latest in a long history of political plots. We examine the shadowy history of election scheming, and trace the origins of the notion that the people, not politicians, should get to pick the president. Plus, how the haunting disappearance of 43 students in Mexico may finally prompt a reckoning with institutionalized violence and corruption. Also, disturbing collusion between super PACs and presidential campaigns, and drawing meaning from the deep, dark world of the comments section.
The jury at the new inquests into the deaths of fans at Hillsborough has this week concluded that they played no part in the tragedy. The press coverage following the event in 1989 included damning headlines about fans' behaviour, including that they'd stolen from the dead and urinated on police. Bob Westerdale, now sports editor at the Star Newspaper in Sheffield, was working as a crime reporter on the newspaper at the time and went down to the Hillsborough stadium on that tragic day. He talks to Steve Hewlett about his coverage of the story, and how the versions of the 'truth' unravelled. Veteran journalist and TV news anchor Sir Martyn Lewis is helping spearhead a UN backed campaign encouraging journalists to take a more 'constructive' approach to news stories. Linked to reports that indicate negative news stories can affect the psyche, the move is aimed at tackling a perceived apathy and feelings of disempowerment amongst news audiences. He joins Steve Hewlett and journalist Jo ...
This special episode of STEAL THIS SHOW features Benji Rogers of the direct-to-fan music platform, PledgeMusic. As we find out, Benji’s an independent musician who founded his platform to offer artists a unique way to engage their fans and super fans, resulting in chart topping albums worldwide. In 2013, Benji was recognized on Billboard’s 40 Under 40 Power Players list and in 2014 at the MUSEXPO International Music Awards, he won Digital Executive of the Year. We discuss how Benji’s early days with his band produced the idea for PledgeMusic; just how broken the traditional copyright system is for musicians; and Benji’s big idea: to push music rights into the blockchain, creating a “Fair Trade” for musicians!

The Belfast Project is an archive of interviews with militia members from both sides of Ireland's "Troubles," the war that raged in Northern Ireland from the 1970s to the 1990s. The archives, which are housed at Boston College Library, are off-limits to the public and law enforcement, due to the fact that those interviewed agreed to speak on the condition that their testimonies not be published until their deaths. But since 2011, British authorities have launched a series of attempts to get their hands on the records, most recently this week when they subpoenaed Boston College for the files pertaining to lead researcher and former militant Anthony McIntyre. Brooke spoke to McIntyre in 2014, during the last subpoena, about the Belfast Project and his frustration with what he saw as the College's capitulation to authorities. She also spoke with Boston College's Jack Dunn, who defended the College's commitment to oral history and its attempts to protect the records of the Belfast Project.
For this episode we watch a Disney movie about a fox, a rabbit, and prejudice. No, not Song of the South. We’re looking at Zootopia. But other then prejudice we look at the original story of Zootopia, and how Disney will never be able to please everyone, and how Alan Tudyk became the new John Ratzenberger.

New York University journalism professor Jay Rosen is hardly the only critic alleging timidity and false balance on the part of public media journalists. But his most cutting criticism is a much simpler allegation: lazy reporting. Rosen was the main attraction at a live recording of The Pub on host Adam Ragusea's home turf — Mercer University’s Center for Collaborative Journalism, which he visited this week. Also on this week’s episode, Adam argues that the podcasting industry is becoming dangerously concentrated in New York.
It's been four hundred years since the death of William Shakespeare, and the Bard is as popular as ever... and just as mysterious. For centuries, a war has raged over the question: who is Shakespeare? We explore how the answer has evolved through the ages, and what that tells us about our changing perceptions of class, art, genius, and religion. Plus, a look at Shakespeare's enduring global relevance, with an inspiring and perilous performance of Love's Labor's Lost in Afghanistan.
A new report by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism suggests that with steadily shrinking news audiences, TV news can expect to experience a disruptive period similar to that faced by the newspapers a decade ago. Joining Andrea to explore the declining viewership, the significance of the threat and how TV news might respond in the future is one of the report authors and former editor of BBC news Richard Sambrook, and Ben de Pear editor of Channel 4 news. Plus John McAndrew Executive Editor of Sky News shares his views and explains how new programme 'The Pledge' and its format could be the way to attract new audiences. The Supreme Court will tomorrow hear the case of a celebrity who wants to keep his name out of a tabloid newspaper story about an alleged extra-marital relationship. Justices are to hear the argument following a decision by Court of Appeal judges on Monday that an injunction preventing his name being revealed should be lifted. This particular injunction ...
To prepare for this week's special hour on Shakespeare, Brooke donned her finest ruff and took a trip to Washington Square Park in Manhattan to hear what the Bard means to the "rabble" (as he would say). Check out the video of our adventure!
There are some telling comments in a report about artifical intelligence that was published in the Guardian last October that has given me pause to think frequently about that place where AI and human intelligence intersect and/or collide: It is relatively easy to create a learning brain but we don’t yet know how to create a heart or a soul. In a recent talk at the New Yorker festival MIT Media Lab director Joi Ito asserted that “humans are really good at things computers are not.” It’s a pair of thoughts that suggest the line we cross at our peril if there is no humanity in artificial intelligence. It’s a subject that often comes to my mind prompted whenever I watch films like I, Robot, adapted from Isaac Asimov’s short-story collection of the same name – especially that film, with a robot as a primary hero character who has a heart (and a soul). Indeed, that movie has a sequence in it that resonated with me from the very first time I saw it. Spooner, the central character played ...
Despite what you might have heard, greed is NOT good. Greed seems to be getting worse across the country. It seems as though people are rewarded for their greed and these same people are held in the highest esteem in the public eye for their ruthless business practices which often goes with treating the people who for them really bad. In this episode, Ric examines the depth of this problem and poses an interesting theory. Plus, music from Eric Sommer.
The latest list of Vuelio’s top ten PR blogs in the UK published on April 13 has a few changes, notably in the top spot. The number 1 slot is now occupied by Stephen Waddington, displacing yours truly (that’s me) from that position after four consecutive years. I’m now in the number 2 position that had been held by Wadds for much of that period. Wadds deserves the top ranking as he consistently and frequently writes and publishes great content on his blog that addresses and discusses issues, events and more focused on the business and practice of public relations. If you want keen and actionable insights into PR, Wadds’ blog is the place to get it (subscribe). For my part, PR is a strong interest area but no longer the prominent one that I write about. Especially since I joined IBM at the beginning of the year, my interests have become stronger in areas I’ve always been keen on – such as artificial intelligence (IBM Watson in particular), machine learning and related topics – but n ...
On The Pub this week, we ask three smart station leaders: What’s the point of local TV stations when viewers can — and increasingly do — watch national programming online? Also on the show, a war of essays about the future of public radio vis-à-vis podcasting prompts veteran public radio host and humorist John Moe to enter the fray. Hear him perform his satirical essay “Public Radio Story Private Pods: Now, Forever, and Yesterday.”
With an aging listenership and the rise of podcasts, the future of NPR is thrown into question. Bob digs into the recent conversation about how the public broadcasting giant is reacting to changes in the industry, and what member stations want from the network. Then, a work of lewd satire has strained Germany's understanding of free speech -- and highlighted an uneasy relationship with Turkey. And, twenty-five years ago, the testimony of Anita Hill turned the Supreme Court confirmation hearings of Clarence Thomas into must-see TV. A new HBO movie, "Confirmation" portrays the history, and reopens old wounds. Plus: the curious world of the novelization industry.
Culture Secretary John Whittingdale is facing calls to withdraw from involvement in regulation of the press following the disclosure that he had a relationship with a prostitute. Four newspapers knew he'd had a relationship with a woman who he later found out was a sex worker, but they didn't publish the story. Steve Hewlett talks to one of the journalists who had been investigating the claims - former political correspondent of the Independent James Cusick, and asks him his views about why he thinks the story didn't run. MPs from across political parties will debate diversity at the BBC in the House of Commons tomorrow. The MP David Lammy is leading the debate - he claims the BBC is falling short when it comes to maintaining its commitment to represent the UK and its nations and regions. Broadcasters have long acknowledged that diversity is a problem, both on and off screen. Steve Hewlett talks to Seetha Kumar, the CEO of Creative Skillset, which works with broadcasters to promote ...
Last August, Flibanserin -- or "Addyi" -- became the first FDA-approved drug aimed at treating sexual dysfunction in women. Sprout, the company that developed the so-called “female Viagra” was understandably excited, and even more so the next day when they were bought by pharmaceutical giant Valeant, for one billion dollars. But after a rocky year, Valeant announced Monday that they had dismissed the entire sales force associated with Flibanserin and would reintroduce the drug later in the year. When Flibanserin first hit the shelves last year, we took a deep dive into its marketing message and the nebulous world of prescription drugs and female desire.
In this episode of the Media Man Podcast, Uzo Ometu talks about what having NFL games means for Twitter, why filmmakers are complaining about a start-up, and how Kevin Hart may be changing the game for Hollywood stars. Also, Uzo acts like Kevin Hart and him are best friends, and he recommends that you play a drinking game off the words "anyway" and "like." I promise I'll work on that. #drinkresponsibly
Netflix's Secret Way to Predict Your Likes. And...Twitter Streams NFL Games - that's GREAT - for the NFL. Plus, rants and raves about how YOU can "hack the media" the Donald Trump way, what it means when 2,000 YouTube channels have more than 1 million subscribers, and a free slogan maker that makes some really heinous taglines. Brand authority Tom Asacker and Media Strategist Mark Ramsey go inside what's really happening in media.

This week Ally takes us on a journey through time. We watch “Groundhog’s Day” and “About Time” and ask if Time Travel will always make you a horrible person, or if you have a moral responsibility to help others? Also we try to find out who’s the dark god of Punxsutawney who trapped Phil Conners’? Rita, Scooter the Groundhog, or Phil himself? And does being British give you the power to influence others without speaking? These and many other questions are answered this week’s episode. Links to articles mentioned in the episode: How long was Phil Connors stuck in Punxsutawney? Our theme music is titled Something Elated by Broke for Free.

Ric has friends, or so he says. In this episode, he talks about a recent conversation he had with his said, “friends” regarding the overall impact the internet has had not on society in general, but how it has affected some key industries. As he talks about these things, he gets a little ranty and bit angry. Plus, new music from a Memphis band with a fantastic history. The Modifiers.
Featuring Ashwin Navin and Dave Harrison. Ashwin was one of the founders of BitTorrent Inc., and is now CEO of Samba TV; Dave was one of the inventors of BitTorrent streaming and is Samba’s CTO. We discuss Screening Room, the founder of Napster’s plan to bring movies to your living room on release day; the BPI’s prodigious anti-piracy efforts and why the future may doom them to failure; and the ongoing war between Google and the MPAA. Finally, Ashwin and Dave share what they’ve learned since the early days of BitTorrent, hint at where things are headed in the world of online TV, point to a couple of interesting developments in the P2P world, and wonder if maybe free is not the future, after all.

One week after the Panama Papers thrust the shadowy world of the ultra-rich into the spotlight, the massive trove of data is still being sifted as world leaders scramble to explain-away offshore accounts. How 400 journalists from 76 countries worked in secret for over a year to decipher the largest leak ever, and how we got here in the first place.
Some weeks ago, Sir David Clementi said the current regulatory model of the BBC Trust, was 'flawed and that a unitary board should run the BBC. Since then, John Whittingdale, the culture secretary, has said if board members were appointed by the government, that this would not compromise the independence of the BBC. However, the current chair of the BBC Trust, Rona Fairhead, has concerns. Steve Hewlett talks to her about whether the Clementi model is really the best model, the importance of the BBC retaining its independence, and why she thinks the White Paper on the future of the BBC, initially due out in March, needs to be published as soon as possible. A three page list of "tips for maximising your interview time" with the popstar will.i.am were given to journalists interviewing him recently, dictating what can and cannot be discussed, and offering advice for when to ask the most important questions. Is this level of involvement from celebrity PRs helpful or meddling in journali ...
The Panama Papers is by sheer volume of documents the largest whistle-blower leak in history. With over 100 news organizations from over 80 countries involved it is also the largest journalistic collaboration ever. And it has already claimed its first scalp. On Tuesday, Iceland Prime Minister Sigmundur Gunnlaugsson resigned over revelations of undisclosed investments in three of Iceland’s failed banks. But the 11.5 million documents from the Panama law-firm Mossack Fonseca also expose shadowy dealings surrounding dictators and kleptocrats worldwide -- with 99% of the iceberg still submerged. The material has been scrutinized by some 400 reporters for the past year, under the coordination of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. Bob speaks with the consortium's director, Gerard Ryle, about how the global investigation came together.
A report from BARB (The Broadcasters Audience Research Board) estimates that Netflix is now in some 5 million UK households, stating that: 'Netflix is by some margin the market leader' among subscription video on demand services. But can its subscriber base keep pace with its ambition to become 'a global Internet TV network'? To discuss, Steve is joined by media analyst Mathew Horsman, from Mediatique. Channel Five is weeks into its first rebrand in five years, aiming to attract younger and more affluent audiences. Its head of programmes Ben Frow has been reportedly handed a 'double digit increase' in his programming budget to change perceptions about the channel. So, what commissioning decisions is he taking to make this happen? He speaks to Steve Hewlett about his ambitions. A Media Society debate tonight will ask, 'is this the end of print?' The Independent's spin-off, the i, is continuing in print form under new ownership; Trinity Mirror has recently launched a new national dai ...

We have all seen the commercials for various prescriptions that make claims to cure all manner of ills you might be suffering. If you have been paying attention to these ads, you should have noticed the side effects all of these have. Some are truly frightening. Keep in mind, you can never get these drugs over the counter, therefore, you have to “ask your doctor” if this drug is right for you. Ric gets into the medicine cabinet on this episode From Radioland. Plus, music from Deering & Down.
Get this, there’s a thing called the “Radio Scholarly Interest Group” — a bunch of academics from around the world who study radio. They invited host Adam Ragusea to talk to them at the 2016 Society for Cinema and Media Studies conference in Atlanta. Adam's talk was about how podcasting is changing public radio. He goes through the numbers (people still aren’t listening to podcasts that much), the creative and economic opportunities, the NPR-station politics, and the two crises that he sees podcasting bringing about in public radio: a mission crisis and a crisis of localism. That talk, plus the extensive and enlightening Q&A afterward, is this week’s Pub!
This week President Obama criticized journalistic irresponsibility in a speech, but critics note that he has consistently worked to block press access. We take a look at the plight of public information under an opaque administration. Plus, the ethics of reading the news; dissecting the notion of "momentum" in election seasons; seeking posthumous fame for a cult filmmaker; and a Ghanaian undercover journalist fights for justice using every tool, and disguise, at his disposal.
How do our assumptions about people affect our assumptions about their food? And how do their assumptions about our food affect how we feel about ourselves? What happens when chefs cook a cuisine they weren’t born into? And what happens when there’s a backlash? Our friend Dan Pashman, host of WNYC Studio's The Sporkful, has launched a special series of episodes called "Other People's Food," which aims to explore exactly these questions. Dan talks with Brooke about the project so far.

A little warning is warranted here. You may get offended over this episode. Then again, you may not. In this episode, Ric talks about how organized religion, by and large, seems to only be in it for the money. There is no preaching here, there is no attempt to change your points of view about anything. Except one thing. Plus, music from Blackberry Wednesday.
NPR’s recent decision to not promote its podcasts in its radio newsmagazines has a lot of people talking about whether local stations are keeping NPR from embracing a digital-first future. On this week’s episode of “The Pub”, we ask three of the smartest station leaders we know: How do you envision NPR and stations maintaining a mutually beneficial coexistence as the primacy of radio fades?
European Union leaders declared this week’s attack in Brussels an act of war; one former ISIS hostage says those declarations play into the terrorist group’s game plan. We look at what’s behind an unprecedented crackdown on press freedom in Turkey, and examine the significance of President Obama's "other" Latin America trip-- to Argentina. Plus, a special On the Media guide to how not to cover Cuba.
A jury in St. Petersburg, Florida, found that Gawker Media must pay $140 million in damages to the wrestler Hulk Hogan (real name Terry Bollea). The case is about Gawker publishing an excerpt of a tape showing Hogan having sex with his friend's then-wife -- a tape Hogan claims he did not know his friend was filming. The case has raised concerns about First Amendment protections because Gawker is claiming the post was newsworthy and in the public interest -- and Hulk Hogan is claiming that Gawker caused him emotional distress by invading his privacy. Gawker Media's President and General Counsel, Heather Dietrick, talks to Bob about the company's plan to appeal the decision, why the jury awarded Hogan such a huge sum, and why the public's appetite for sex tapes has waned.
Twitter is ten years old and has had an "utterly transformative" impact on journalism. That's according to Emily Bell, Director of the Tow Centre for Digital Journalism at the Columbia Journalism School. She says it has been the most important journalistic tool since the phone. We'll hear from her and from radio and TV presenter Richard Bacon, one of the UK's pioneers in using Twitter. He has 1.5 million followers and has experienced both the bright and very dark sides of Twitter. We'll also ask if we - all of us - are too quick to share pictures and video on Twitter and other social media in the aftermath of terror attacks, like those in Brussels yesterday? We'll be hearing from Hend Amry who began #ISISMediaBlackout on Twitter to discourage users from sharing ISIS propaganda online. She feels that sharing footage of attacks inadvertently serves the purpose of terror groups who hope to spread panic. Also - the editor of the Mail on Sunday, Geordie Greig, will reveal what he thinks ...
As Ric attempts to get caught up on all the happy madness happening around Radio Memphis, he takes a moment here to have a chat about the general state of the so called “faith in humanity” or, as it may be in this case, the lack thereof. Also in this episode, Ric will tell you about a couple of things that goes against the grain with what is popular and how he feels about some of these things. Plus, music from Lucero.

Glenn Greenwald, who is most famous for helping to break the Edward Snowden leaks, is a longtime critic of public media journalism, which he sees as chronically mealy-mouthed in the face of nefarious or duplicitous powers. This week on The Pub, Greenwald and host Adam Ragusea discuss that long-maintained criticism, his 2010 confrontation with NPR counterterrorism correspondent Dina Temple-Raston, how journalists use the word “torture,” and more. Also this week: It turns out you have to credit Skype when you use it in a broadcast; NPR decides it won’t cross-promote its podcasts on-air; a young producer makes a rookie mistake and decides to make a podcast about the experience; and did the NewsHour unwittingly interview a white supremacist?
