As our screens are bombarded with the relentless 24/7 news cycle and endless social media streams, a new breed of media outlet is taking the opposite approach—producing thoughtful and original content, with an emphasis on quality rather than timeliness. But as the Web speeds by around them, how do such outlets stay relevant while producing content that is often completely disconnected from the news cycle? Join Noah Rosenberg, founder of Narratively, as he discusses the platform’s multimedia approach to “slow storytelling” and its focus on longform, human-interest reporting in this fast-paced world.
