Great to have a pod about our industry
These guys cover a broad range of topics from the video streaming space, and do a pretty good job making it interesting. While occasionally a little forced/ scripted, the show is well-produced and enjoyable to listen to.
Critical topics, well balanced across the media distribution industry, great speakers and moderators.
Serious insights for OTT insiders
The Video Insiders provides real-world up to date news and insights on what's happening in the video industry. I never miss an episode! Dror and Mark bring serious guests on the show who are worthy of being listened to. My only complaint is that they should publish more often...!
