We're All Content Producers Now

In the Balance this week is taking a closer look at the book trade. We’re considering the issues at stake in a dispute that’s been brewing between one of the world's biggest publishing houses, Hachette, and the world's biggest book seller, Amazon. Scott Jacobson joins us from Seattle, he’s a former executive at Amazon and one of those who pioneered the launch of the Amazon Kindle, now Managing Director of Madrona Venture Group. Philip Jones is Editor of the “publisher’s Bible” the Bookseller magazine. And Sam Hall is the DJ Goldierocks; She’ll be telling us what the book industry could learn from the world of music. We're also looking at what it means to be a “content producer” in the Internet age. We’ll hear from the author of the children’s sensation The Gruffalo, Julia Donaldson, and we’ll consider how you can make it all pay with the comedian Colm O’Regan. #FullPodcastAvailable #Podcasts
