Media Hacks Audio Podcast #33 Is Now Live

Posted by

Episode #211 of Six Pixels of Separation – The Twist Image Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to. This is also episode #33 of Media Hacks.

Instead of the usual phone conversation, Hugh McGuire, Julien Smith and I met up for an early morning breakfast at the infamous Bagels Etc… in beautiful Montreal. The conversation floated between mass media versus Social Media to looks at everything from how Old Spice is leveraging the convergence of the two, to why both Clay Shirky and Nicholas Carr have new business books that are well-worth reading (even though they both don’t agree with one another). We also attempt to tackle the conversation over content and its value (re: pricing model) in our current society, and many other hacking media topics. As with most episodes of Media Hacks, some of the language is not safe for work (you have been warned). Enjoy the conversation…

  1. Had to drop by (I never do this) to offer props on a great episode. Good, intellectually engaging content throughout. Even if it was in a restaurant. Well done!

  2. i’m surprised not more comments! this was one of the better media hacks i’ve heard lately.
    i found that the restaurant noise (walla!) and the eating actually made it more authentic. the quality of the discussion was higher than the conference call episodes.
    unfortunately this is not a realistic format for every episode.

  3. Audio comments rarely get Blog comments (sad reality). I know that Julien, Hugh and I agreed that if the other folks can’t make the conference call, we would try to make the recordings happen in person as much as possible.
    Thanks for being the other listener.

  4. my pleasure for listening! i really had a moment when you talked about this at the end because i find it so strange how tied we’ve become to “professional” media capture.
    you shoot a video in your messy den and your colleagues say “the horror!”, but everyone else who lives in this world ends up loving it.
    i think we’re finally getting past this century of “over-production”.

  5. I find your discussion about reading interesting in dealing with education and how teachers use the technology to relate to how students are now learning rather than how students learned in previous generations. We as teachers have to radically change our thinking or we just bore students in the classroom. I do see many sites and people who are working to make education better for the now generation.
