Masterclass in brand story telling

As a podcast and podcast fan I have to say that this is an absolute masterclass in story telling. Fascinating subject and brilliantly told stories

the laughing saboteur ,

So they did that!

Very honest and candid look at a smart new company. So far from the stuffy pomposity and self-importance of traditional advertising and marketing people. The way you work shows in the work that you do. This seems obvious, but think how many companies really live up to that.
I knew, and like, a lot of the brands that they developed. Fascinating to hear from the people behind the scenes.
Well put-together, tight and concise. First class podcast.
