This episode is hosted by Trevor. Today we have Jason A England, an Assistant Professor of English at Carnegie Mellon back on the show to talk about the “creatives bubbles” and the bubbles within those bubbles. The glut of content on the hopes of making a fast grab of cash. As social media tycoons grab up book and entertainment deals, the questions have to be asked… “who does this appeal, and who is making these decisions?” And though you may hear them in the background, this episode is NOT for the birds.
