Episode 111: Taking On Big Tech, Disney Closes In On Fox, Global Cuts


Jim Waterson (Media Editor, The Guardian) & Caroline Crampton (writer, Hot Pod & The Listener) join Olly Mann to debate the week’s UK media news.

They discuss how an unlikely alliance is forming to try and change the way Google, Facebook and others dominate the media market, as well as the new research showing the divide between podcast audiences in the US and UK.

Also on the programme, the panel chat about how Disney is edging closer to completing its deal for Fox… plus Global and Bauer announce big changes to commercial radio with a flurry of press releases.

AND in the media quiz, it’s the return of our favourite game: Famous Last Words.
