The Media Matters Podcast

Hosted by Colette Sexton, Media Matters talks to industry experts on the issues that really matter on the first Wednesday of every month.

This month's podcast features former Irish Times economic editor Jane Suiter, who is now director of the Institute for Future Media and Journalism at Dublin City University.

Despite the struggles facing traditional media outlets, she believes there are still careers for journalism students, but in a wider range of organisations, including technology companies. Suiter also discusses the work being done to combat fake news, and how to increase the number of women in senior positions in the media and the number of female voices on air.
