A Rare Listen/ Behind-the-Scenes Workings of the Pros
As an aspiring copywriter, this kind of elaboration on individual ideas is wholly inspiring for my own writing endeavors.
As a fan of comedy and humorous written inklings abroad, these spots slide perfectly into my podcast stream, good for chuckling and pondering alike.
Thanks for showing young writers some pointers, and getting to the core of effective dialogue.
Great Teaching Tool
Love the podcast. I teach TV and Radio copywriting at Temple U in Philly and I'm using this as an additional teaching tool. If you're ever free and in Philly, I'd love for you to stop by and share some of what you've learned at the top of the heap for 25 years.
My education as a radio writer was my Creative Director tossing 2 Mercury Award CDs and a cassette of Oink Ink spots at me as he locked me in a broom closet with a boom box.
