Candid Creatives!

Paul and his incredible guests shine the brightest of lights on the creative industry by painting career pictures you'll never get tired of looking at! Engaging, inspiring, and informative are just a few of the words I’d use to describe the time you’ll spend with them. Thanks so much for putting out such a spectacular show Paul - keep up the great work!

Not for marketers only...

Real Famous is a thought-provoking, interview-style podcast aimed at discovering how brands become popular. Through conversations with professionals on both the agency and client side, Paul uncovers truths about strategy, team-building, brand power, and the human experience in general. It's a fascinating peek into the industry, even for those (like myself) who aren't involved in marketing at all.
