Journalists strike; Snap downsizes & The News Agents arrives

Media news and analysis, with host Matt Deegan and guests this week Charlotte Tobitt (UK Editor, Press Gazette) and James Cridland (Editor, Podnews).

Staff at Reach went on strike on Wednesday, condemning poor pay and high pressure workloads. Meanwhile discontent brews over at Broadcasting House - could BBC journalists be next on the picket lines?

Old and new media alike are feeling the squeeze as Snap scales back - what does a restructure mean for the social media company?

Plus, Dino Sofos and Lewis Goodall share their big plans for The News Agents podcast.

Also on the programme: Justice by podcast? Our guests assess the impact of true crime podcast The Teacher's Pet in the Chris Dawson murder trial.

And in the media quiz, we’ll find out who’s been in under the spotlight for botches and blunders.

A Rethink Audio Production, produced by Phoebe Adler-Ryan with support from Matt Hill.
