Becoming an audio-first publisher: what, why and how

Three-year-old investigative newsroom Tortoise is focused on slow news: stories and investigations that reveal what's driving the news. They initially launched long-reads and data journalism, but last year, they decided that Tortoise would become audio-first. Now, audio is the primary output of journalism on their website and app. In this fireside chat, Chris Sutcliffe talks to co-founder and Publisher Katie Vanneck-Smith about why Tortoise decided to go audio-first, what changes that required behind the scenes, and how they're growing audiences through audio.
