Today on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast, hosts Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven were joined by James P. Othmer, author of “ADLAND: Searching for the Meaning of Life on a Branded Planet,” to discuss the day’s big media headlines.

Today’s podcast became a lengthy discussion about charging for media content versus giving it away for free, and the power of writing for free as a blogger.

Barry Diller, Chris Anderson and Malcolm Gladwell should be thrown into a cage match,” Othmer said. “And the winner can get to determine the economic model for all media content for the next 100 years.”
