Anonymous Quora Post Offers Insight into Talk Show Split


This anonymous Quora commenter offers remarkable insight into what could have led to The Talk Show moving from 5by5 to Mule Radio Syndicate. It’s a bit long, with a 10 point breakdown of what could have led to John Gruber’s silent departure. Here’s one I hadn’t considered:

Gruber posts a list of the talk show sponsors on Daring Fireball each week. This is worth almost as much as the daring fireball sponsorship which he currently sells for $7500 a week. I bet this played a major part in the negotiations.

Sounds feasible.
