Welcome to our fourth podcast, in this episode Alex and myself discuss Instagram; with it's recent purchase by Facebook and Instagram's growing role within Photography and Photojournalism. We also spend discussing Alex's move to Canada and what are his first impressions and we reflect on KONY2012 and compare its media attention to similar projects (like Aaron Huey's: American Natives Prisoners of War TED talk & TED wish) that haven't been given the same attention they should deserve, especially when they are closer to home.
