Today, LionTree and Kindred Media Founder and CEO Aryeh B. Bourkoff is joined by Anna Palmer and Jake Sherman, two of the co-Founders of the recently launched political media brand Punchbowl News. Anna and Jake were co-authors of the must-read Politico Playbook before leaving to launch the business at the beginning of this year. Tune in to hear about their accidentally auspicious timing, the challenges of starting and staffing up during a pandemic and the focus on non-partisan facts and legislation that drives their relentless reporting. It's great insight into the workings of a modern media brand.
