Curious about what happened to advertising after the last season of Mad Men? You’re in the right place. In each episode of AdSquawk, we talk about what it takes to advertise well in today’s media world as well as swap stories about weird client requests, chat design and copy, and share nuggets of insight. Come for the comedy, stay for the bird puns.
It's a HI-atus, Not a BYE-atus
Welcome to this week's episode of AdSquawk! Early on, we mess around and talk with no real direction. We discuss animals? And a lot of random stuff before we announce our summer hiatus! Catch the whole ep to hear why we're doing this.
This is a D&D Podcast Now
And the hits just keep on coming, baby! And by hits, we mean special guests. Cassie takes Eddie's seat this week to join Danielle, Jodi, and Adam to discuss the Tampax x Amy Schumer collab (14 vids in one day!!) and the current state of our industry. Grab a drink, pull up a chair, and let's talk shop! And, shop is now Dungeons and Dragons, NOT advertising!
Facebook: *You’re* the Product
We have another extremely special guest for you this week: The brilliant Shannon!! She joins Eddie, Adam, and Jodi as they discuss all the brands that are currently boycotting
Facebook. If you're living under a rock, several large brands (Adidas, Clorox, Coca-Cola, and Starbucks just to name a few) decided to stop running ads on Facebook due to the platform's inability/refusal to censor posts that spread false information.
Powerful Hair From The Men
Welcome to this week's edition of AdSquawk. Fan favorite Nick joins Adam, Jodi, and Danielle. This super-quad discusses The Human Right Campaign/Hank Willis Thomas' huge "Black Lives Matter" / "All Li_es Matter" installment, Vice Media urging advertisers to reassess their block lists, and Ja Rule bringing down the house in an ad for a Greek Restaurant. Grab some ouzo, pull up a chair, and let's talk shop.
Bye, Aunt Jemima! Bye, Uncle Ben!
This week on AdSquawk, Eddie, Adam, Jodi, and Danielle discuss the ~slutty NYC Covid-19 print ad, Aunt Jemima & Uncle Ben getting the boot, and Twitter's newest update: audio tweets (that no one really cares about anymore, lol). Adam also educates us a little bit on the history of comic books at the top of the ep.
Black Lives Still Matter
On this week's episode of AdSquawk, we are still talking about the black lives matter movement. However, there are more direct ties to how it pertains to our industry in this episode. We reflect on an Adweek panel comprised of black professionals in the advertising world. We also discuss the open letter signed by 600 black advertising professionals which provides 12 actionable steps agency leadership can take to make our industry more inclusive and safer for black professionals.
Legitimately the only podcast I listen to! I appreciate that the content is relevant and that you don’t have to be in marketing to find value! Sean is my favorite... he sounds ridiculously handsome and also insanely good at fantasy football.
Danielle is mean to Ed sometimes but I still enjoy!
