1. MEDIA MATTERS to Kirstine Stewart Tony Chapman 43:23

Is social media a weapon of mass destruction? Is it undermining democracy, pulling people to the fringe, fueling hatred and torching the middle ground? Is conventional media any different? Is there any trust left in the news we digest and the stories that populate our feed?

There is no one better to answer these questions than Kirstine Stewart, one of the most influential individuals in media. Kirstine is Canadian, brilliant, a high achiever with a career earned through extraordinary accomplishments. Today Kirstine is Head of the Future of Media at the World Economic Forum. With that position, she has the owners and leaders of all world’s leading media organizations on her speed dial.

In this episode, Kirstine also shares her life’s story and the lessons she has learned as the Former VP @Twitter US, where she had to onboard then Presidential Candidate Donald Trump. In Canada, Kirstine was the Founding GM of Twitter Canada. Exec VP and Head of CBC, CBC Newsworld, Head of International Hallmark Channels, Alliance Atlantis Lifestyle Channels, President Paragon International. Kirstine is the author of the best-selling Business Leadership Book “Our Turn. Her take on mentorship and her position on imposters syndrome alone is refreshing and of immense value.

Armin Huska, Global Head of Media and Agencies at RBC, joins me to discuss the future of Canadian media, why not to drink the kool-aid of social media platforms, and why journalism matters.
