#88 - Express deal nears, freemasons & a podcast ad boost

Media news and analysis, with Olly Mann guests Boyd Hilton (Heat magazine) and Rebecca Gillie (theweek.co.uk). The panel discuss the big stories of the week, including the news that Richard Desmond is (finally) poised to sell his paper empire, whilst purchasers Trinity Mirror face phone hacking victims in court.

We discuss those stories, plus Ian Katz's first moves at Channel 4, why 6Music might need a rejig of its own, the fallout from the BBC gender pay gap dispute... how podcasts are the future of advertising (sponsors - please get in touch)...

AND in the Media Quiz, we hold people to account for the words they use. Just like proper journalists.
