#94 - Press Freedom, Al-Jazeera Strikes, BBC Sound Effects Library

Olly Mann presents news and analysis of the media industry with editor in chief of Business Insider UK, Jim Edwards, plus freelance journalist and special projects editor at Buzzfeed UK, Louise Ridley.


This week: How does press freedom in the UK compare to the rest of the world, the BBC partners to sell podcast ads, and why Al-Jazeera’s London staff are striking.


All that, plus life after mornings for Matthew Wright and what losing the Debrief means for the industry.


And in the Media Podcast Quiz, we poke around the vaults of the BBC’s sound effects library to play ‘What’s That Sound?’.


A PPM Production, produced by Rebecca Grisedale-Sherry.
