This Week in Digital Media

Every-other-week a new person will takeover as the host of "This Week in Digital Media." The host will text 7 times M-F about their expertise in journalism/media. We will try and bring in a variety of experts, so one week might be about podcasting and the next about AR or business topics. You can text back questions, etc, and maybe even host yourself one week. Our MC is David Cohn.

Will my question(s) actually be answered by the host?

Our hosts do their best to answer you directly. With many subscribers though, it’s not always possible to respond to every question. You may find that your question is addressed by the host in a text to all subscribers, as other subscribers were asking the same question. Great minds think alike!

Can other subscribers see my texts?

Nope. This is not a group chat. Only the host will see messages you send to them. Your conversation is strictly between you and the host.

How often will the host text?

It’s totally up to them and varies greatly by host. Feel free to text them directly and let them know if you want to hear from them more or less.

How do I cancel?

You can text STOP at any time to end all text messages and any associated charges.

Does Subtext sell any data collected?

No way. Subtext is not a data business. Subtext has no intention of selling any user data.

What if I have other questions?
