About this Episode

after a new raft of high-profile site closures, the HACKS Institute gang, properly reassembled at last, ponders the current state of journalism On The Internet, including a recent, apparently failed attempt to bring journalism to the (shudder) blockchain, the fate of the "pivot to video" movement, and what the story of Gawker tells us about our current moment. also peter thiel is a literal bloodsucker who can fall in a rank ditch tbh. also also please enjoy the hilda cameo

song at the end: her space holiday, "death of a writer"
