    More than Pandora Papers. How to create collaborative investigative journalism that stands out?

    October 2021 was noted by one of the biggest journalistic collaborations to date. The release of the materials of Pandora Papers was the result of the joint effort of more than 600 journalists from 150 media outlets around the world, working through 12 million documents.

    In the new episode of Media Insider, we are talking to Fergus Shiel, Managing editor of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists that was coordinating the Pandora Papers investigation, and Brigitte Alfter, Director for Arena for Journalism in Europe. We are talking about the behind-the-scenes of journalistic collaborations, the challenges that come with that and how we can maximize the effects of investigative journalistic collaborations.

    Tackling the Pan-European media space (and living to tell the tale)

    Tackling the Pan-European media space (and living to tell the tale)

    The dream of conquering Pan-European media space is passed from generations to generations of ambitious media managers. So appealing, yet so hard to achieve. What’s happening, who are the players (read warriors) and how are they building their pan-European audience.

    In the new episode of Media Insider, we are talking to the three media managers about what they’ve learned from building pan-European newsrooms. And yes, we'll even look at the Eurovision to see if we have something to learn from it.

    Guests:


    Mick ter Reehorst, Co-founder and Managing Director of Are We Europe & Collective
    Paul Ostwald, Co-founder of Forum.eu
    Paul Salvanès, publisher & co-founder VoxEurop

    While social media compete with ever more sophisticated algorithms, email has been one of the most promising tools for publishers.

What features and models can make email more useful for audiences, helping avoid subscription fatigue and inbox overload?

    In the new episode of Media Insider, our guests dive into the discussion on subscription fatigue and its effect on the media managers, the reason behind the spike in newsletter popularity, how to turn fans into paid subscribers, and the best metrics to use.

    Guests:


    Sarah Ebner, Head of Newsletters at Financial Times
    Jason Bade, Co-founder & President of Pico, platform for creators.

    Moderated by:
