Podcast: Exponent Episode 013 – BuzzFeed and Native Advertising

On the newest episode of Exponent, the podcast I co-host with James Allworth:

In this week’s episode we discuss feedback about Ben’s Android criticism, then dive into Andreessen Horowitz’s $50 million investment into BuzzFeed. Is there a real business here? We also discuss native advertising: Ben is quite a bit more optimistic than James.
