#131 - Free Speech; ARIA Awards; Coronavirus & Spitting Image

Faraz Osman (managing director, Gold Wala) and Alex Hudson (deputy editor, Metro.co.uk) join Olly Mann to dissect the fortnight’s media industry news and gossip.

Toby Young puts your money where his mouth is in defence of free speech; Samira Ahmed settles with the BBC and Britain exits the Creative Europe Fund.

Plus reaction to news of the 2020 Radio Academy ARIA award winners; how the coronavirus is affecting planning and production; and the BBC’s hunt for new bosses of its pop networks.

And in the The Media Podcast Quiz, we celebrate the return of satirical puppet show Spitting Image.

The Media Podcast is a PPM Production. Produced by Rebecca Grisedale-Sherry.
