    Press Publish 14: Jenna Weiss-Berman on BuzzFeed’s podcast strategy and moves into audio news

    BuzzFeed has figured out how to make content go viral. Can it figure out how to build community and reach younger audiences with podcasting?

    It’s Episode 14 of , the AndroidForMobile Lab podcast!

    press-publish-2-1400pxMy guest today is , the director of audio at . Jenna was hired last fall to figure out the site’s podcasting strategy, and thus far she’s launched three shows, each targeting the sites’s young diverse audience.

    With in-article chat bots, BBC is experimenting with new ways to introduce readers to complex topics
    “For us, this is a way to let people read and ask questions at their own pace, instead of having them read through long screens of text. Often people aren’t engaged in stories because they haven’t had the right context.”
    Can we keep media literacy from becoming a partisan concept like fact checking?
    Plus: Screen time debates, and what the data says about kids and smartphones.
    After years of testing, The Wall Street Journal has built a paywall that bends to the individual reader
