What is a radio, anyway?

My stuff


  • 2018 Internet Trends: that Mary Meeker thing that comes out every year. Very good read. There’s no mention of ‘podcast’; but a few mentions of radio - you’d like slide 96, which says that Americans spend 13% of media time with radio, yet it only gets 9% of ad spend. That means radio gets about US$9.3bn less than it ought to, Meeker appears to be arguing: at least, she argues similar for mobile. Incidentally, this is a 294 page slide deck, but it is meant for reading: so don’t worry about the video you might see elsewhere.
