To Snap Or To Medium (the lost episode) – This Mobile Life (S2E4)

To Snap Or To Medium - This Mobile Life - S2E4
This episode has a focus on social media apps, in particular the rise of Snapchat, Instagram and Medium. We chat with Francis McCarthy (Unikrn) based in Seattle and Jamie Andrei (Flying Machine Films) in Sydney. We discuss:

1. How Medium is changing the blogging game.
2. Snapchat vs Instagram (recorded before the launch of Instagram Stories).
3. The perils of publishing on LinkedIn.

We recorded it using a 360 degree video camera. So you can touch, tilt, spin and explore the video to see it in all its goodness. If you have Google Goggles, you can view in immersive 360 view. Check out the Youtube video:

We were also wearing microphones to record the audio. However, the original audio recording failed due to a faulty SD card (*shakes fist*). We were able to use the audio from the 360 video camera for the podcast. Hence we’re calling this the lost episode! Its raw and mostly uncut. It simply features a couple of friends chatting about how tech is changing the world.
