In this episode of TheMediaBriefing podcast, we speak to editorial cartoonist Andy Davey to discuss his work for the Guardian; The Sun; Private Eye; Punch and more, and discuss how the homogenisation of digital news brands can be stopped.
In the news roundup, Chris and Esther debate the pros and cons of Google AMP for publishers, reported declines in the number of editorial staff at the FT, Slate, Thrillist and other, and Esther fails to prevent Chris evangelising about virtual reality and its use at publishers.
