On The Mediatwits, MediaShift’s weekly podcast, our Staci D. Kramer filled in for our founder, Rafat Ali, as co-host. Among the topics she discussed with MediaShift’s Mark Glaser: this week’s high-profile tech and media departures — Apple’s Steve Jobs stepping down as CEO, Poynter’s Jim Romenesko going into semi-retirement and Slate‘s Jack Shafer being laid off. Later in the show, Shafer makes an appearance to talk about the situation at Slate and pay tribute to Romenesko, and after that, Owen Thomas talks about his new venture, The Daily Dot. Here’s the full podcast via MP3.
