Franchise Content/IP - What Major Streamers & Media Companies Need Most
Welcome to Peter's 1st "Fearless Media" podcast "QUICK TAKE" - where Peter discusses a hot media/entertainment/tech story in real time. First stop - Netflix - and its recently announced Q1 earnings that were eye-opening to many.After surprising Netflix's Q1, many think streaming content spending will go down. WRONG! The need for differentiated exclusive content goes UP for media companies to break out of the pack in our increasingly hyper-competitive streaming-driven media world. And FRANCHISE IP is the ultimate weapon. That is where the mega-focus and mega-content dollars will flow via an almost existential "Less is More" content strategy - less sheer volume (fewer titles), but more impact (franchises that immediately grab our attention via instant name and "brand" recognition, and built in audiences). In this special episode, Peter will analyze the forces at work - the numbers that back it up - and the unique power of IP/literary franchises and "brand names" (renowned authors, for example) to change the game and power massive future success across the globe, across all platforms (including emerging new ones), for decades to come. You can follow Peter on Twitter @pcsathy. And check out Peter's two firms CREATV Media and music-focused Deep Cuts Media.

Fan Controlled Football: The Ultimate John Madden Fantasy League - Interview with CEO Sohrob Farudi
Fan Controlled Football (FCF) just scored a $40 million Series A financing round from crypto kings Animoca Brands and Delphi Digital. But FCF is not just a Web3/NFT/blockchain story (although it is that too). FCF is the ultimate John Madden football - where fantasy football meets IRL. Founder/CEO Sohrob Farudi joins me to discuss it all - and how their tech empowers thousands of fans to not only crowd-source (and decide) a team's name and logo, but also to call the plays for real football players who play on real football fields - all in real time. FCF even gives fans an opportunity to invest in a fractional share of ownership of the team they help to build. FCF is a fascinating company that brings to life the true, full promise of the metaverse - integrating virtual worlds with the physical world into one seamless experience where the fans control everything. And there is no more special bond than fans with their favorite sports teams. Learn more about FCF at https://www.fcf.io/ Learn more about me and CREATV Media.

CryptoPunks' first rapper and overall "King" SPOTTIE WIFI i joins Peter and crypto investor Jacob Holmers for a discussion of NFTs and how they will transform the music industry (and the overall media business in general).

Now, with NFTs, Artists of all kind (musicians, film producers, game producers) can create a direct relationship with their audience and superfans - including via direct financing/investment and direct distribution. They can even give their audience/superfans an opportunity to share in the value they help to create (via actual ownership in the Artist's/Creator's works).

The Exploding Creator Economy, NFTs, DeFi & Media Transformed: Interview w/ BITKRAFT's & Infinite Canvas' Sebastian Park
Sebastian Park, co-founder of BITKRAFT Ventures and Infinite Canvas, joins Peter for a discussion about how Web 3.0 will transform the world of media and entertainment - and, in particular, how Creators will be able to go directly to their audience and superfans to engage with them (and monetize them) via NFTs, DeFi and other direct-to-consumer modes enabled by the blockchain. In this special session, Sebastian gives a full presentation of what Patreon's CEO Jack Conte calls "The 2nd Renaissance" - i.e., the feedback loop between tech and Creators that drives the expansion of Creator-type jobs and changes how society interacts with media and influence.

How NFTs Are Game-Changers for Creators, Artists & the World of Media & Entertainment
NFTs are no fad. They are here to stay - and they will radically transform the world for Creators, Artists, their content/IP, and their superfans. They already are. In this episode, I give an overview about the decentralized Web 3.0 world of NFTs in the world of media and entertainment. It just may transform the way you think about NFTs and the blockchain that fuels them. NFTs aren't just what you think they are (Beeple and visual images). They can be membership into exclusive clubs with exclusive benefits that rise in value, and can be re-sold. They also can give the NFT token holder actual ownership interest in the IP/content itself (and give the superfan/collector the ability to directly finance new art and content). Creators love them. The mega middlemen platforms like Facebook, YouTube and Apple - that built their trillion dollar plus valuations on the backs of your content/IP - certainly don't. NFTs enable Creators and Artists to take back the power (and dollars) to where they belong – i.e., to the individual(s) who created the IP or experience in the first place.

My 10 Predictions For Media & Entertainment In 2022
In this special year-end episode, I lay out my 10 predictions for media and entertainment in 2022. Just when we thought we were out(side), it (Covid) pulls us back in(side)! (Yes, a Godfather Part III reference to start things off!). While nothing is more powerful than real physical human connection, our increasingly tech-driven virtual world was the big story for media and entertainment in 2021. In particular, this past year marked the mass “coming out” party for an entirely new kind of transformational decentralized blockchain-enabled Web 3.0 world. And in the world of media, the headline blockchain story took its form in so-called non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Will the blockchain’s adoption in media accelerate in 2022? My Magic 8-Ball says “Signs point to ‘YES’.” And that is my prediction #1. If you like my "Fearless Media" podcast - and want to hear more - please rate, share and subscribe to it.

Ultra Marathon Man Dean Karnazes – whose superhuman feats have blown minds and motivated millions around the world - joins Peter for a discussion about how he does what he does.

He is a multiple New York Times bestselling author and media figure – appearing on 60 Minutes and all the major late night and daytime talk shows. And he is a US Athlete Ambassador in overseas sports diplomacy. It is a fascinating conversation with an extreme sports legend.

Love, Loss & Music: Interview with Manchester Orchestra's Andy Hull & Robert McDowell
In this very special and deeply personal episode, Peter interview great indie band Manchester Orchestra's singer, chief songwriter and guitarist Andy Hull and lead guitarist (and brother-in-law) Robert McDowell about the band's latest great album "The Million Masks of God." The album's themes encapsulate the entire cycle of life - from birth to the after-life. Peter reveals that his mother, Eva, just recently passed away from her 5 year battle with cancer – and Manchester Orchestra’s McDowell, lost his father to cancer as they recorded the album. Hull, McDowell and Peter not only have a track by track discussion of the album (and what the lyrics mean to the writers of it). The core of their discussion is about the infinite meanings and impact those same lyrics can have on an artist’s audience. It is an interview about love, loss, and the deep power of music to console and to heal. Peter wrote a companion about this interview for VARIETY – an article titled “Love, Loss & Music: How Manchester Orchestra’s Songs of Solace Helped a Grieving Son Heal."
