In this week's episode, we cover two major acquisitions that are content marketing related: Yahoo! by Verizon and Dollar Shave Club by Unilever. Medium launches a content marketplace that might be a category killer, and the New York Times content studio is now a full agency (who would have guessed?). Rants and raves include stopping and how publishers love for native advertising may mean that brands will inherit the web. This week's TOM example: Houghton.
