News and analysis, this week with the MD of content company Somethin’ Else Steve Ackerman and journalist Alex Hudson.

In this edition: Jason Seiken has left the Telegraph, but in what state? The panel discusses what the news organisation needs to do to take back the digital initiative.

We have a UK election round-up - since our last podcast ITV has produced a debate programme, BBC Scotland journalists have been attacked and Channel 4 has commissioned election-themed comedy and drama. Steve and Alex share their views.

Plus as Victoria Derbyshire’s daily show launches on BBC Two and the News Channel, editor Louisa Compton tells us about making the leap from radio to TV. There’s talk of YouTube’s new revenue stream and the app predicted to kill Snapchat: Periscope.
