a new cooperative conversion in media-land
Not all the media-biz news out there is terrible. (Most of it by far is, yeah, okay.)
This I’m a bit slow to learn of — partly perhaps because my own audio consumption doesn’t lean so much to entertainment-style general-audiences podcast fare. But if you’ve followed me here for a while, chances are that you’ll have a sense already of my interests in cooperative organization and in smaller-scale media and publishing.
Useful comparisons with the reorganized Maximum Fun are Defector, more text- than audio-content and entirely employee-owned, and Nebula, video / audio only and creator- (rather than employee) owned in significant part.
