This week it was a pleasure to welcome Sophie Goossens (lawyer at August & Debouzy) and Darren Hemmings (founder of Motive Unknown) to the show.

On this penultimate instalment of our weekly appointments we start by chatting about a DMT all-time-favourite topic: Pandora’s quest for profitability and we also mention the latest CRB rate-setting procedures.

In other news, another round of Tidal-ness as we talk about Jay-Z’s tweets and wonder: should the company just stop with the hollow PR talk and come back in a couple of months with a more substantial plan?

We also discuss the EU Copyright Directive and the Digital Single Market initiative as PoliticoEU leaked some of the talking points of the upcoming announcement on the matter.

Finally we chat about live music subscriptions startup Jukely, as the company closes an $8m round and is set to expand to more cities.


I really hope you enjoy this week’s show, have a fantastic week and ’till next time!
