PHOENIX - The audio podcast, long cast aside by many news organizations, is finding a resurgence.   Says Jacob Weisberg, editor-in-chief of Slate Group in this interview with Beet.TV

While there has been new attention for podcasts with the success of Serial, Slate has been producing them since 1999.  He says "as a journalist, I have never seen such intense user experience around a medium.

In this wide ranging conversation, the longtime editor talks about how the mobile device has reignited long form journalism and speaks about the evolution of business models for digital publishers.

We spoke with him last week at the IAB Leadership Meeting.

Beet's coverage of the IAB meeting was sponsored by SpotXchange.
