A podcast worthy of praise

Love this podcast! It is my go-to for staying up to date in the ad industry. I’m a Junior copywriter and have been listening to this podcast for almost a year now. I really gain valuable insight from it and it’s fun. It never gets old with all the topics they pick. This last episode of diversity and inclusion and mentorship was a great one! All those topics are so valuable to me! Highly recommend this podcast for anyone, from students to CEOs.

Rooster for real ,

Great st stay on the leading edge...

I guess with my job I should always be on this edge - but YTPAA is a great way to keep my knowledge and conversation on-point!
