The Clarity team’s favourite podcasts

jonathan-velasquez-160775-unsplashWe might have widely differing musical tastes, never agree on which is the best sport and always argue about food. If there is one thing though that the Clarity team is united on it is our passion for podcasts.

We all agree that there really is no better way to get through those challenging commutes than with white buds popped in our ears and smart people informing us about our favourite subjects.

So here are a few of our favourite podcasts as chosen by the team.

In spite of its imminent implementation there is still a lot of discussion about how publishers, agencies and brands should respond to it. For example, the publishing industry and Google are still at loggerheads as to how they will work together in the future. Two weeks ago execs of four major groups; Digital Content Next, European Publishers Council, News Media Alliance and the News Media Association, which represent over 4000 publishers, issued an open letter to Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai, criticising the company for its plans for GDPR which it unveiled last month.
