Sun, 26 Mar 2017 13:50:20 +0000

My partner Andy and my friend David are doing an “interview cast” which is “a 24 minute conversation about one topic, with one expert.” They call it The Riff and their first episode is about the evolving news media landscape with CNN journalist Laurie Segall. Here it is:
