The government reveal a long-awaited tax break for the BBC and commercial productions - Olly Mann discusses the potential impact for the sector with Faraz Osman (Lemonade Money) and Matt Deegan (Funkids Radio, Folder Media).

Also on the podcast: Vodafone raises prospects of a spending spree with a quad-play service involving Virgin Media and possibly Blinkbox.

Plus: there’s a media quiz in which an infamous Chris Morris fable is stated as fact, but our producer doesn’t have the heart to correct the panel.
