Look Out: Big TV is Eating the Internet – Media Unplugged Ep 6
We have about two thousand listens to the new twice-monthly podcast I produce with branding strategist Tom Asacker.
It’s called Media Unplugged.
Have you listened yet?
This week Tom and I ask whether the Internet is disrupting the TV industry or – after decisions by HBO and CBS to provide streaming-only subscription services – is Big Media eating the Internet? We think so!
Then, is Pinterest the coming ad colossus that could dwarf Twitter and Facebook? There are lots of good reasons why the answer may be “yes”!
In our rants and raves section, Tom rants about a CNN anchor giddy with delight over Bristol Palin’s traumatic tussle in an Alaska bar. And I rave about what happens when a gaggle of organic food experts are punked with a tasty new “organic” treat that just so happens to be…everyday food from McDonalds. Is it better tasting than McDonalds? Fresher? Healthier? You bet it is! Even though it’s not!
Informative, insightful, fun, and most of all – under 25 minutes.
