Welcome to the 53nd episode of the Mediatwits podcast, with Mark Glaser and Rafat Ali as co-hosts. We were off on hiatus the past few months while Mark was getting a kidney transplant and Rafat was launching his new travel startup, "Skift":http://www.skift.com.
This week we are looking at a couple big online video intiatives: the new "HuffPost Live":http://live.huffingtonpost.com video channel that will stream 12 hours per day 5 days per week; and the new "YouTube Elections Hub":http://www.youtube.com/politics that includes video content from eight editorial partners and will live-stream the upcoming political conventions and debates. We were joined by HuffPost's Roy Sekoff, YouTube's Olivia Ma and GigaOm columnist Liz Shannon Miller.
