Radio Berkman 235: The Rise and Tumble of the Tumblr Teen
In her article "The Secret Lives of Tumblr Teens," Elspeth Reeve tells the stories of some of Tumblr's most popular bloggers — kids who started their blogs in high school, made a ton of money, and then inexplicably disappeared.
In this episode we talk to Reeve about what she discovered when she went looking for these teens and what that can tell you about Tumblr and the teenage child stars of the Internet.
