Advertising Business Bliss!
Dan and his incredible guests cover all aspects of the advertising business, not only providing insight we wouldn't have otherwise, but also giving creatives the inspiration they need to move forward in their career. The best part is it all comes from truly engaging individuals that know the industry inside and out. Thanks so much for putting out such a spectacular show Dan - keep up the great work!
Hands down my favorite creative advertising podcast. The advice and wisdom given in these shows could be made into a book.
Fails to be Irrelevant
I’ve been listening to this podcast for the past couple months and digging through the archives everyday. I’m headed into my 3rd year of college studying advertising and it’s priceless to hear from people in the industry everyday. Literally, it’s free. Thanks Dan!
