On this episode of Now & Next we journey into the business aspects of one of the buzziest areas of the media landscape: Podcasting. And really, there’s nobody better to explain the dramatic changes playing out in the audio space than Nicholas Quah.
He’s a veteran of a bunch of online media companies that you probably know, like Business Insider and BuzzFeed. He’s also a contributing writer to New York Magazine, he’s been a Nieman Journalism Fellow at Harvard, and he’s also the founder of Hot Pod, the leading newsletter about podcasts.
