Hello and welcome back to Equity, a podcast about the business of startups, where we unravel the numbers and nuances behind the headlines. This is our Wednesday show where we limit ourselves to a single topic and dig deep.

  • The state of the advertising market and its impact on creative work in general.

Towards the end, we had a moment to comment on AI, but we kept that a bit far from our central theme.

Longtime Equity listeners will recall that we’ve covered the creator economy a few times on the show and blog, including:

And if you need even more, this 2021 investor survey on all things creator economics is a great look back in time!
