I'm totally hooked on:
http://serialpodcast.org/about

Narrative podcasting is a really, really cool content niche and WBEZ is doing it really well. Storytelling has always resonated with folks, and it's rad to see radio stations pioneering this with podcasts. 

If you haven't checked it out yet, you need to.
A new podcast from the creators of This American Life. One story. Told week by week. Hosted by Sarah Koenig.

"Weird Corporate Twitter" by Kate Losse:
http://thenewinquiry.com/essays/weird-corporate-twitter/
I don't necessarily agree with 100% of the points made here, but this is a great piece on brands making a foray into weird twitter, as well as brand communication on social channels in general

"Today, BuzzFeed is an entertainment site and a news organization at the same time, which means that serious, ethical reporting efforts live side-by-side with aggregation, curation and, in some cases, downright theft"

http://www.politico.com/story/2014/07/buzzfeed-benny-johnson-plagiarism-109444.html
Benny Johnson, the 28-year-old BuzzFeed editor who was fired last week for serial plagiarism, never went to journalism school. He didn’t get his start working a beat at a local newspaper. By the time he joined the site, in 2012, his previous job experience amounted to a few posts at conservative advocacy groups and a stint at Glenn Beck’s...

One of my favorite insights into reporting, from one of my idols:

At this point, we are having trouble as a society recognizing our problems, much less solving any of them. But absent a properly funded professional...

"If people stopped using the term millennial more than they use the word dude, the world would be a better place"
http://officemalarkey.com/dont-taze-the-millennials-bro/
The term Millennial, like many incessantly recurring buzzwords, is slightly bullshit. Does it really make sense to speak in absolutes about a demographic

Interesting development indeed, sad to see authorship go but I have to believe they're correct in analysis of data indicating that authorship doesn't make a better user experience.
 
I’ve been involved since we first started testing authorship markup and displaying it in search results. We've gotten lots of useful feedback from all kinds of webmasters and users, and we've tweaked, updated, and honed recognition and displaying of authorship information. Unfortunately, we've also observed that this information isn’t as useful to our users as we’d hoped, and can even distract from those results. With this in mind, we've made the difficult decision to stop showing authorship in search results. 

(If you’re curious -- in our tests, removing authorship generally does not seem to reduce traffic to sites. Nor does it increase clicks on ads. We make these kinds of changes to improve our users’ experience.)

On a personal note, it's been fun and interesting travelling the road of authorship with all of you. There have been weird quirks, bugs, some spam to fight, but the most rewarding thing has been (and will continue to be) interacting with webmasters themselves. We realize authorship wasn't always easy to implement, and we greatly appreciate the effort you put into continually improving your sites for your users.  Thank you!

Going forward, we're strongly committed to continuing and expanding our support of structured markup (such as schema.org). This markup helps all search engines better understand the content and context of pages on the web, and we'll continue to use it to show rich snippets in search results.

It’s also worth mentioning that Search users will still see Google+ posts from friends and pages when they’re relevant to the query — both in the main results, and on the right-hand side. Today’s authorship change doesn’t impact these social features.

As always, we’ll keep expanding and improving the set of free tools we provide to make it easier for you to optimize your sites. Thank you again, and please keep the feedback coming.

You shouldn't half-ass anything in life, especially not your health
 
Why mid-calorie soda simply doesn't make sense...
There s been a lot of discussion recently about sugar and obesity in America and globally.  Naturally, people are looking for healthier options without chemical additives.  So it s no surprise Zevia is experiencing the explosive growth we ve seen over the last couple years.

Parrish Medical Center is wonderful in every way. The care I received is unlike any other medical facility I've ever been to. I would definitely recommend them to my entire family and friends.
