Sixteenth Minute (of Fame) is a weekly show from Jamie Loftus that takes a closer look at the internet’s main characters – one part reported, one part interviews, and one part Jamie collapsing her permanently internet-damaged brain. Whether it’s an enduring meme or a dreaded Character of the Day distinction, it’s the kind of notoriety that often results in little money, unwarranted attention, and a confusing blurred line of consent. What do you do when you get more attention and judgement than any one person is built to handle? The Sixteenth Minute of Fame is the place where we figure that out, putting people in the context of the moment they've been frozen inside of.

    the dress

    In 2015, the world was gripped by one question: is this dress black and blue, or white and gold? No, no, I refuse to argue with you about it — but the story of The Dress is the dying breath of a pre-algorithm driven social media, the peak of Buzzfeed, and contains some dark truths about the internet.

    Featuring interviews with Taylor Lorenz (@taylorlorenz), author of Extremely Online and Max Fisher (@maxfisher22), author of The Chaos Machine.

Good show!

Good show, such a great subject matter. It’s also very nice to see Jamie still putting out content while fighting an uphill battle with courts over the Grand Rapids incident.

Second ep - woof

Love the concept of this show. I really liked the first episode - especially hearing Kevin’s backstory; however, the academic in the second episode did exactly what this podcast aimed not to do: erase Kelly. His academic ramblings for minutes on end while the host barely chimed in made Kelly’s prominence in this story feel even more distant.

New fave podcast!

I was so excited for this pod and it did not disappoint!! As usual, Jamie approaches her subject matter with empathy, nuance, humour, and great research. Can’t wait to hear more!
