Episode 134 – The JC in Liquidation; Listening Habits in Lockdown; Edinburgh TV Festival goes online

Media industry news and gossip presented by Olly Mann with guests radio and podcast critic for The Observer, Miranda Sawyer, LBC host Iain Dale and senior analyst at Edelman and host of the ‘Primarily: 2020’ podcast, Karin Robinson.

On today’s show: The rise of pandemic podcasting, what we lose if we lose the Jewish Chronicle, why The Telegraph is shunning China’s money and Ofcom’s feathers are ruffled as London Live and ITV air baseless covid-conspiracies.

Plus, the Edinburgh TV festival goes digital and the audio industry offers funding for freelancers hit by the outbreak.

And in The Media Quiz, we wade through the weirdest shows in the Disney+ back catalogue.

The Media Podcast is a PPM Production. Produced by Rebecca Grisedale-Sherry.
