Reddit turns into media company, launches video div

Reddit has started venturing into making its own Content, too. It recently launched a podcast & newsletter.

Reddit’s mission was to connect people across the world through authentic conversations, collaboration, and community — video was an amazing storytelling medium and there’s no better wellspring of original stories than Reddit, co-founder Alexis Ohanian told The Verge.
