American Express/Meredith Give Departures the Boot (277)

Joe and Robert talk about the explosive growth of the creator economy, while AMEX and Meredith depart from print in exchange for digital.


The Information estimates that last year's creator economy take is about $2 billion dollars. Does it have room to run?

CNBC and The Drum cover content marketing like it's a brand new thing, while American Express ditches their Departures print magazine for the web's greener pastures.

And podcasts continue to go big, now accounting for over $1 billion in advertising revenues.
