Mumbrellacast: Nine and News fight over breakfast, Google and Facebook battle the ACCC

On this week’s Mumbrellacast, we’re knee deep in financial results season and Seven, Nine and SCA are in. There’s also our take on Nine and News’ fight over the Daily Telegraph’s coverage of the Today Show ratings, plus Google and Facebook are on the defensive against the ACCC – but what does it all mean for the future of digital platforms in Australia?

We also chat to Mark Green, CEO and co-founder of The Monkeys, and Nicole Taylor, CEO, McCann Australia (otherwise known as chair and deputy chair of The Comms Council) about the #MeToo movement, industry body overload and tackling the problem of talent. (24:00)

Plus, Tim makes a reference that dates back to 1898 about the Irish newspaper The Skibbereen Eagle. For some reason, he thinks we’ll know what he’s talking about. We don’t.
