Listen on

Episode notes

Media news and analysis, with new host Matt Deegan and guests this week consultant Paul Robinson (Creative Media Partners) and Elizabeth Carr-Ellis (Hello Magazine).


Netflix buys up the rights to the Roald Dahl back catalogue. With Amazon, Disney and Apple all spending big this year, how does this deal match up in the streaming wars?


Also on the programme: with Andrew Neil spilling all in the tabloids, what now for GB News - and what  does this mean for the return of News UK’s TV plans?


All this, plus the sonic screwdriver changes hands as Dr Who leaves BBC Studios and... in the media quiz, we’ll find out who’s axed, back or vaxxed.


A Rethink Audio & PPM Production, produced by Matt Hill and Peter Price.
