    Ryan Wallman is Disrupting the advertising business with a very funny book

    The advertising business is crazy. And lately, things have gotten even crazier. It’s more complex. With more platforms. More jargon. More acronyms. And more opportunities to poke fun at all of it. Creative Director and copywriter Ryan Wallman has done just that. His new book is called “Delusions of Brandeur.” And it’s a wonderful antidote to all that ails the ad business. Listen in as he and Rob unpack the inspiration and some of the hilarious content that fills its pages.

Disrupt your thinking

Rob’s background as a creative combined with his current role as CEO creates a rich layered portrait of his subjects and their work. Great for creative who are looking to understand business on a deeper level.

Get closer to people who are one step ahead

The Disruptor Series is what got me hooked on podcasts. And now that I’ve listened to a number of others–I’m even more enthusiastic about this series. Rob Schwartz is a great host, an avid reader, and genuinely curious. Unlike many hosts who just like to hear the sound of their own voice, Rob is in a class of his own as an interviewer. The guests are thought leaders and disruptors–a number have written books and these book shares add to the podcast experience. My only complaint–need more episodes. More cowbell.
