Are digital media companies publishing companies? Why do some companies shy away from the terms? How useful is a degree in publishing anyways? To find out, DigiPub host Laura Linnaeus talks with Vanessa Golembewski, Writer/Producer at NBCUniversal, comedian, and Moth storyteller. Vanessa takes us on the journey through her career from textbook editorial assistant to video producer to comedy writer. She tells us about what it was like to serve as the face of her brand at Refinery29, how she ended up starring in some surprising places, how gender proportions affected her career, and how some surprising content went viral. In the post-interview panel discussion, Laura is joined by Denis Saulnier of Harvard Business Publishing, Jack Cashman of the Harvard Alumni Association, and Sue Brown of Macmillan Learning who engage in a brief panel reaction to the interview, including how it resonated with their various endeavors in publishing.
