"Content is NOT king..." Eh?!
Media Voices kicks off a right riveting podcast series of some of the best-known and most outspoken names in publishing and media, that guarantees to be buzzword-free, occasionally bleepable, and a little confrontational: real world publishing insight from real people deep inside the business.
