PlayPauseListen to the Podcast
In this latest cross-time zone MAEKAN It Up, Eugene and Charis talk about the latest casualty in long-form online publishing and the price of fame. With an inability to monetize effectively and a lack of journalistic support from the very industry it reports on, MTV News has recently cut its long-form content and pivoted toward video.On the somewhat less serious side, Brooklyn Beckham's become the laughing stock of photographers and the Internet itself with the release of his new photography book “what I see.”
As always, follow Eugene’s journey as the budding illustrator that never was as he learns (or fails to learn) from Charis’ example.
MAEKAN It Up draws from our topical newsletter “the Briefing,” published twice a week. You can subscribe to MAEKAN It Up and other audio stories via your favorite podcast app or platform.
