The Adweek podcast. It's toasted.
I never leave reviews. Usually I forget, don't have the time or just being plain lazy. But, I would like to break my vow of e-silence for this podcast. This is why: For a year now, this podcast has given me a unique insight into the marketing and advertising world. It's fresh, honest and most importantly, entertaining. I'm no ad man but I am an aspiring copywriter working in marketing, so knowing a bit about what's going on makes me feel like a less lousy creative. These guys do a fantastic job of breaking down the noise of the advertising world - giving you more useful digestible chunks than a hearty breakfast cereal.
Also, they have a cool intro music.
