Stacking Up: Is the Substack eNewsletter Platform Disrupting Food Media?
Although it has been growing in popularity since its launch in 2017, Substack’s eNewsetter paid-subscription platform really took off during the pandemic. There are currently 500,000 paid subscribers generating some $17 million in revenue that goes directly to the editors/writers/journalists who produce the content and manage their own subscription lists and payments. Marquee names in tech, politics, and business journalism have migrated away from traditional media to create their own Substack offerings. But how will this trend impact food media, which is ripe for disruption? Guest host Mitchell Davis talks with veteran journalist/award-winning author Emily Nunn, whose Department of Salad Substack newsletter has generated a considerable buzz in and out of bowls across the nation and around the world. Episode 237 is made possible by the generous support of JUST Egg.
