Episode notes

In this edition of The Media Podcast, host Jake Kanter tackles the latest headlines with a stellar line-up of panellists.

Adam Crafton (The Athletic) joins us from the sweltering heat of Qatar where journalists abound in jumpers, to discuss what the event is revealing about football and politics.

Dan Taylor-Watt (Digital Consultant) takes us through Disney's CEO-switch, including why Bob Iger never really left.

We then dive into a kids-themed segment with Faraz Osman (Chair, BAFTA Children & Young People's Committee) and Tim Hunter (Director Learning, Policy & Membership) taking us through the festivities at this weekend's Children & Young People Awards.

In Part Two: Charlotte Tobbit (Press Gazette) takes us through the consequences of Elon Musk making content users the new content moderation panel.

And in a Court Case themed Media Quiz, James Ball (TBIJ) updates us on the anti-SLAPP legislation bounced back in Parliament this week.

A Rethink Audio Production, produced by Phoebe Adler-Ryan with support from Matt Hill.
