The News Meeting
In every newsroom there’s a meeting to decide what should lead the news and why. Every Friday three Tortoise journalists compete to convince editor James Harding that they’ve got the top story. James has been editor of The Times newspaper and director of BBC News, which is why it’s his job to decide what mattered most that week.
Episodes are released every Friday so you can catch up on three important stories from the past seven days.

This podcast may use tracking and attribution and dynamic content insertion
Stats: Statistics are produced by Acast to help The News Meeting to understand how many downloads it is getting, or how many people are listening. Your device’s IP address and user agent is used to help calculate this figure. Acast is IAB v2 certified.
Tracking and attribution: Acast or its partners may connect the fact you listened to this podcast to an action elsewhere on the internet. For example - it may spot a device that downloaded an episode of The News Meeting later visited the website of an advertiser; or it may track that a device that listened to The News Meeting also listened to a different show. This form of attribution is used to measure advertising effectiveness.
Dynamic content insertion: Acast may use limited data that they know about you - the device you’re using, the approximate location you’re in, or other data that can be derived from this, like the current weather forecast for your area - to change parts of the audio. The News Meeting may do this for advertising or for other forms of content, like news stories.
The News Meeting is able to use the above tools since its podcast host or measurement company offers this service. It doesn’t mean that this individual podcast uses them, or has access to this functionality. We use open data.

Get a universal link
https://podnews.net/podcast/ia6w0/listen is a so-called universal link: it will automatically open Google Podcasts on Android phones, Apple Podcasts on iOS devices, or this page. Both Apple Podcasts and the Google Podcasts player are pre-installed on every phone.
A QR code to this URL is a great way to share your podcast. You’ll find a QR code at the top of this page on desktop. It’s particularly ideal for business cards, posters or conventions.
But - you are always better to fully control your own podcast and not rely on any third-party - even us. So, here’s the code to add a universal link to your own website. Copy/paste this HTML into a new file on your website, and link to that instead.
Don’t code? Here are more universal link providers you can use.
Privacy: The player will download audio directly from Acast if you listen. That shares data (like your IP address or details of your device) with them.
