    If you’re interested in Canadian media — and who among us is not — you probably already listen to , the flagship show of growing podcast empire, which dives into the nation’s journalism issues. I was to talk digital news strategy in 2016, and Jesse just had me back for today’s , where — contrary to the doom and gloom that accompanies most discussion of the technology’s impact on the media.

    Well, I’m not going to say we avoided doom or gloom entirely — but we did get to have a fruitful discussion of some of the more tech-forward ways the industry is changing. In particular:

    — Will blockchain meaningfully change the fundamental questions about how we journalism gets funded? (I’m skeptical.)

    — Will AI and bots replace reporters? (Maybe on the fringes, but they’re mainly for scale and speed.)

    — What is Apple News planning? (Dunno, but I’m hopeful the mobile OS companies can play a more useful role in news than Facebook does.)

    It’s a fun conversation, and I hope you’ll give it a listen .
