This week on the MediaShift podcast, Mark speaks with Monica Guzman, Nieman Fellow and media columnist, about what engagement should really mean. You’ll get briefed on this week’s biggest digital media stories: Twitter reverses the chronology; Yahoo and the New York Times shuffle the deck; and Wired’s plan to combat ad blockers. Plus, why ad blocking is being done for a very good reason, and how publishers should embrace change.
