Hubspot's Quest to Be King of All Media (271)

Marketing automation company Hubspot launches a new podcast network, while Joe and Robert fight some more about Clubhouse and NFTs.


Social audio company Clubhouse finally launches in Android, but faces an uphill climb around moderation and trolls.

Hubspot makes a brilliant move in starting a podcast network. Could it be a glorified sponsorship package? Possibly. But it's still brilliant.

And we finally know why YouTube has been fiddling with their short-form video advertising...they are launching a $100 million dollar creator fund for short-form video creators. There you go.

And yes, social media platforms are starting to look the same. Who could be the winner? The boys think Twitch.

Joe's commentary includes book publishers working to establish direct-reader relationships. Robert rants about making a big deal about CMO term length, and raves about Signal's outing of Facebook.
