Journalism should be fun - investigating burnout with John Crowley
"Just over 50% of journalists said they were 'overwhelmed' by information during their working day and wanted to 'explore solutions' to make it more manageable." That's the headline finding from John Crowley's survey on digital journalism and burnout, for the European Journalism Centre's News Impact Network.  John's now a freelance digital journalist and consultant, but his career began 20 years ago, as an editorial assistant on The Irish Post newspaper in London. He worked in that newsroom - which only had one computer with access to the internet - for five years, gaining lots of reporting experience and a few good anecdotes along the way.  Since then, he's edited on newspapers that were going digital, and been in charge of digital newsrooms for The Wall Street Journal, International Business Times UK and Newsweek.  He joins the podcast to talk about the causes of burnout in newsrooms, how this can affect freelancers trying to pitch, and what could help.  Also worth a look: Anne Helen Petersen's viral BuzzFeed essay, How Millennials Became the Burnout Generation.  -- How has your industry moved from analogue to digital?

Graffiti was analogue internet, with Creative Rebels podcast co-host David Speed
Well, this episode has got me nostalgic for London trains, tubes, bridges and underpasses that were covered in graffiti in the 90s.  As one of the graffiti writers says in the incredible 1983 documentary Style Wars, that my guest David Speed mentions in this episode, once he'd tagged a subway carriage, it'd take his work all over the city, to people who'd never heard of him, who'd probably never meet him. And yet. His work was out there.  Graffiti was the analogue internet - along with literature. (h/t Maria Popova: https://www.theeuropean-magazine.com/maria-popova/8840-maria-popova-on-information-in-the-digital-age) Graffiti artist in the 90s, now a street artist in the teenies, David Speed has just scored a major podcasting victory with his with his co-presenter Adam Brazier: Creative Rebels has been out for a month, and already shot to No.1 in Apple Podcasts' Business chart, and they're chilling out in New & Noteworthy, the best place for a podcast to get discovered.

Chaos with Ed Miliband's podcast! Featuring producer Emma Corsham
It was a simple and inescapable choice back in spring 2015, wasn't it? Stability and strong government with incumbent Prime Minister David Cameron, or chaos with Ed Miliband. We, the British people, did not choose chaos with Ed Miliband. All the Brexit palaver has sent the political news cycle spinning faster than ever, but there's one politician who's having a gentle bit of fun with it: yes, non-chaos-maker, Ed Miliband. First, he tweets at Theresa May ahead of her party's no-confidence-in-her-vote: "if it goes wrong tonight I can promise you a bright future in podcasting."  He would know, he's got a successful weekly one called Reasons to be Cheerful. Secondly, Ed really doubled down on all this stuff, and put an edited version of the chaos tweet on an Ed Stone (please google that) on the front of his Christmas card. His podcast producer, Emma Corsham, pops onto Freelance Pod with the card to talk about how Theresa May might fare as a podcaster, the Geoffocracy and, inevitably, shark movies. Emma works on a range of podcasts, and she can help you produce one too, so look her up on Twitter: @produceremma. -- How has your industry moved from analogue to digital?
