Is Writing a Commodity?

Episode Summary

We posted our first writing job recently and were overwhelmed with >1,000 responses (compared to only a fraction of that number for our frequent designer and engineer posts). Does that mean writing is a commodity? Is this why freelancers are starving, journalism is shutting down, and the self-publishing industry is exploding? We take a hard look at a discipline we both love. Mike and Jason just want to make refrigerator magnet poetry.
