Media Will Eat Itself
A podcast for media professionals.
The Media Will Eat Itself podcast began life at the beginning of 2018. The premise is that media has changed (and is changing) so quickly that it’s difficult to keep up. It takes a certain kind of spirit and tenacity to adapt to how fast everything is spinning, and to take stock of your skills to see how they can still be relevant.
The podcast series sets out to find these people and quiz them about what they think makes them tick, and what the world of media looked like when they first started out. This means talking to many different people across a range of professional disciplines, from marketers to company directors, and from designers to photographers.
