Beyond the Noise with David Jamieson is a weekly podcast with CommonSpace journalist David Jamieson, where he gets behind the 24/7 news cycle and gets to the heart of issues, trying to find the substance behind the headlines.
THIS week Jamieson speaks to Layla-Roxanne Hill, a director at the Ferret, Scotland’s investigative journalism cooperative, about the state of the media in Scotland and the role of new media.
0:51 – How are The Ferret and other forms of new media contributing to the struggling media landscape in Scotland?
6:03 – How has the model of media as profitable business undermined media ecology and how can we construct a different model?
10:54 – Is the decline of the media business model connected to its failure to understand political ‘shocks’ and social dynamics?
19:00 – Can new media address the decline of local media and the geographical retraction of public information to big cities?
