Podcast 10: Philip O’Connor – Off Message 56

No Comments

On a flying visit to his native Dublin, freelance journalist Philip O’Connor, the man behind his own media blog and podcast, the wonderfully titled Our Man In Stockholm, dropped by for the tenth media-savvy Off Message podcast.

We chewed the fat on his attempt to crowdfund much of his journalism income, how he uses social media to generate work, his often outspoken tone online, his unique and unusual route into journalism, and loads more.

Podcast 6: Michael O’Keeffe – Off Message 49

No Comments

The sixth media circus that is the Off Message podcast is with Michael O’Keeffe, CEO at the regulator of all Irish broadcasting – though thankfully not podcasts…not yet, anyway – the BAI, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.

During our chat Michael revealed the BAI’s origins in Ireland’s murky pirate radio past and its planned next move into regulating parts of the online media wild west; the type of complaints they regularly get about programmes; where they get their funding and how some would rather not pay up; their wooing of London’s international broadcasters pre-Brexit; the growing Irish appetite for podcasts – *applauds*; their take on diversity and plurality in Ireland’s broadcast media; and more.
