Check out this interview from WNYC on the future of Long-Form Journalism in a world obsessed with brevity

 

Pro-Publica managing editor Steve Engelberg and Frontline’s Raney Aronson discuss how to do long-form storytelling in a short attention span world. They’ll debate whether or not the Internet really has shortened readers’ attention spans, how new technologies could contribute to a revitalization of the form, and the all-important question of who will actually pay for these longer, more labor-intensive pieces.
