Clear Channel presents is a platform for exploring ideas that interest people working in advertising and media, but aren't necessarily about Out of Home.
The podcast is a mixture of interviews, round tables and live event recordings, co-hosted by Caroline Forbes and Lucy McKillop.
Clear Channel Presents Cephas Williams: Part One
In this episode co-hosts, Caroline Forbes and Lucy McKillop, interview Cephas Williams - founder of 56 Black Men and long-time friend to Clear Channel. The topics covered are broad and serious. We’re not going to dress this up – it’s an intense listen.
As we approach the launch of his new campaign, Cephas goes deeper into his thoughts about the importance of positive representation of Black men in the mainstream media among many, many other things. The three also have some thought-provoking exchanges around the Black Lives Matter movement, and George Floyd’s murder. It’s not going to be a laugh a minute. But it is an incredibly important, and pertinent listen for Black History Month 2020.
This is part one of the interview – part two is to come later this year.
Clear Channel Presents Myers Briggs and Lockdown
Caroline Forbes and Lucy McKillop in conversation with Justin Cochrane, Martin Corke and Adrian Green.

The conversation is a wholistic yet not entirely linear ride through what Myers Briggs is and how it can be used. They also talk about how different personality types have handled lockdown, and how we might feel coming out of the enforced Covid-19 induced period of hibernation.
Some of the references we used to prep for the conversation, and further reading…
