It's even worse than it appears..

  • You should be listening to Countdown with Keith Olbermann. He's saying the things I've been thinking about the news, how the business really works, from the inside, the things they will never say on CNN or MSNBC. Plus he's incredibly funny. 💥#
  • Now the things he won't say about I Heart Radio, the company that owns his podcast.#
    • They are the former Clear Channel, a huge dominant force in broadcast radio and outdoor advertising.#
    • They would probably love to be Spotify, but they aren't so all their podcasts available "where ever you get your podcasts," my favorite phrase that I will never get tired of hearing. (I own that, I made sure podcasts would be that way.)#
    • I Heart Radio hopes to stop saying that at some point. #
    • I wonder how much they pay Olbermann or if it depends on whether they can lock it down?#
    • All that said, listen while it's not behind a paywall, it's wonderful Golden Age of Podcasting stuff. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
