This week, media analyst Nic Newman takes us through the findings of his report into News Podcasts and the Opportunities for Publishers for the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, which looks at the future of news podcasting and the state of the medium across five different countries. Among other things, we discuss how young people are fuelling the growth in news podcasting, whether podcast revenue will start cannibalising other revenue streams, and whether the podcast explosion has already plateaued.

In the news roundup the team discusses Apple News’ new newsletter (about news), the realities of running a journalism awards show, and runs a gauntlet of other stories after a busy news week.
