A number of news outlets are starting to use Snapchat to share images and short video with the app's community, from covering events to offering 'behind-the-scenes' media.

In this week's podcast we look at examples from the Washington Post, Mashable, NowThisNews and Vice, and hear from representatives of each, including several journalists with first-hand 'snapping' experience, including:
  • Cory Haik, executive producer and senior editor of digital news, Washington Post
  • Jeff Petriello, producer creative, Mashable
  • Maya Tanaka, producer, NowThisNews
  • Jonathan Hunt, global marketing director, Vice

Here is more on the Washington Post's use of Snapchat during the Super Bowl.
