What Has and Hasn’t Changed in the Dynamic World of Audio Consumption?
Are the Core Values still relevant?
“The Daily” was born out of a traditional public radio format. What does that format look like when powered by Times journalism and a newsroom of over 1,500 journalists worldwide? Hear from “The Daily” host Michael Barbaro, along with Theo Balcomb, the show’s managing producer, as they share what they’ve learned from combining the best practices of public radio with classic New York Times journalism to create a new form of audio storytelling.
The podcast landscape has now gotten much more interesting. Google's new podcast strategy has the potential to dramatically change two areas that have hampered podcasting: recommendation and discovery. The combination of new tools from the world's largest data company, improved functionality on the largest handset install base and the emergence of AI and machine learning will be the topic in this General Session. Join the founder of Google Podcasts and an expert in AI to learn what this means for public media.
