#78 - Facebook Watch, The Week Junior & podcast poaching

Media news and analysis, with broadcaster Olly Mann, Louise Ridley (Buzzfeed) and Matt Deegan (Folder Media).

As Facebook launches a new video service, we ask if this heralds the return of *actual sound* to online video production.

Felicity Capon, deputy editor of The Week Junior, talks to us about the success of the magazine, two years in - and how to write hard news stories for children and young adults.

Also in the programme: The Guardian lose their Football Weekly presenter and producer to a new podcast startup; is this a green shoot of growth for the audio industry? Netflix loses its Disney content - but gains the comic book universe behind Kickass and Kingsman - and in the Media Quiz, we discover the brands getting a TV-makeover.
