Going Independent with Saagar Enjeti, Co-host of Breaking Points

Going Independent with Saagar Enjeti, Co-host of Breaking Points

We talk to Saagar Enjeti, former cohost of the news show Rising (1.3M YouTube subscribers). Last week he launched Breaking Points, an independent news and opinion show, that has already hit 250k YouTube subscribers and more paid podcast subscribers than they had projected they would get in their first year.

We discuss…
- Legacy vs Independent media
- The business model of legacy media companies
- The often-overlooked drawbacks of independent creation
- Meeting people where they are (everywhere)
- Creator tools
- Open systems vs walled gardens
- How subsidization has corrupted the business of journalism
- People don’t understand how big the Internet is
