The Slate and Main Podcast
Weekly updates on video marketing from the ones who know it best.
Game of Thrones: Over. Big Bang Theory: Over. Grumpy Cat: Over. This podcast? Still going strong. Jake and Hunter take on the issue of endings, with plenty of time left over to hit on a fan-favorite topic: subscription content. From HBO to Disney, big changes are coming. Tune in this week to find out what they are.
TV isn’t healthy. No, not just for you, but the industry, too. Nielsen reports bode ill for prime time, and Jake and Hunter discuss the ramifications. It gets even weirder, though, with the recent report of many New Media publishers taking a flying leap from their previous evaluations. Is nothing sacred anymore? This episode evaluates the publisher landscape, from TV to digital. Listen in!
Ever feel down? Sad? Blue? That’s how Burger King has made Hunter feel with their run of bad video ads. Along with Jake, this week is an review of Newfronts’ news, Game of Thrones’ viral Starbucks cup, and the importance of staying hydrated.
Where do you watch video the most? The numbers are in, and, honestly, you probably won’t be surprised. This week also examines the satisfaction of cord-cutters, the state of stats in the ad industry, and Snapchat’s surge. Don’t miss this info-heavy episode!
Which is better, branded content or user generated content? If they hadn’t been distracted by Lord of the Rings, maybe Jake and Hunter would have been able to answer that question. Tune in this week to listen to them try and to hear the special announcement at the end of the episode.
In this episode, Jake and Hunter get down to the minute level and look at Disney+’s proposed offering, price point, and projected future for the coming year, as well as eMarketer’s quickly changing mind on the state of Snapchat.
Spring may have sprung, but winter is coming! In anticipation for the final season premiere of HBO’s smash success, Hunter and Jake are taking a producer’s look at just a few of the expenses Game of Thrones has accrued over the course of its eight year run and ask the big question: was it worth it? Plus, they also hit on Pinterest’s IPO and the EU’s passing of Article 13 AKA “The Meme Ban.” All that on this episode of the Slate and Main Podcast.
Jake’s on vacation this week, so filling his seat is Intern Jess. She and Hunter explore video’s endangered species list, several brands’ April Fools hijinks, and Apple TV+. Then they launch into the hard work of making Jess form opinions about the complicated world of video marketing. Listen in!
This week’s episode is piled high with facts and stats, batted back and forth between co-hosts as they discuss Google’s newly announced Stadia, Amazon’s newly announced video ad options, and Netflix’s ballooning budget. And somewhere along the way, the Beer Wars make and appearance, but don’t worry- this podcast is corn syrup-free. Listen now!
No one knows the future, but it sure is fun to guess! Jake and Hunter speculate wildly about several returning topics like platform responsibility (this time for a terrorist attack) and the future of streaming, as well as new topics, such as Hollywood’s business of relationships. Listen in!
