“‘Content is king’… That bullshit will change. We’ll have a resurgence,” Radiohead’s singer Thom Yorke told Alec Baldwin in the actor’s podcast, in early 2013. I came across that phrase just yesterday while going on the train to a class in my M.A. program in social journalism, where my classmates and I are studying, precisely, how to make what Yorke predicted happen.

While Yorke was speaking about music and the way it is produced, distributed and consumed today, when I heard him it was easy for me to think about journalism. At some point, he recalled the first time a mobile company asked Radiohead for new music to include in its new phones. It wanted “some
