Has the Chaos Scenario come true? Apple commissions a video series...Everybody is broadcasting on Facebook Live.
This week the chaos ccenario. Not the GOP primaries but the prescient 2005 book by Bob Garfield, the host of WNYC's On The Media. Steve argues that the media apocalypse predicted in "The Chaos Scenario" is coming true, and there is no better evidence than the precarious economics of podcasting. Saul says that there is lots of great news and entertainment being produced and even sustainable business models emerging.
Also this week:
- Fullscreen launches a subscription service
- Apple commissions its first video series
- Snapchat adds video chat
