||ExplicitITIAPTWC Episode 51 – Ian Reichenthal||Hi there. Apologies for the wait since the last episode. I’ve been busy. Anyway, this one’s a corker. Ian Reichenthal is the one US creative I really wanted to speak to. This is because he’s been involved with most of my favourite ads o||4/1/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitITIAPTWC Episode 50 – Jo Arscott||Jo Arscott is a true pioneer. When she started in advertising she was a teenage girl of colour. And that was back in the 1980s, when the planet was a lot less woke (as the kids say) than it is now. Then she paved the way for ‘Integrated’ work||1/13/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitITIAPTWC Episode 49 – The Client||Last week I had the idea to interview a client. Come on. Haven’t you always wanted to know what they hell they’re all thinking? So I put the word out and found one: an automotive client for a big brand that works with a good agency, so he kno||12/3/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitITIAPTWC Episode 48 – Cam Blackley||Here’s my chat with my old AD, Cam Blackley. Looking at his awards haul since we worked together, you could make a good case for the fact that I was just holding him back: D&AD Gold and Silvers, Titanium and Gold Lions etc., along with a rocket||11/12/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitITIAPTWC Episode 47 – Hugh Todd||Like most episodes of ITIAPTWC, my chat with Hugh offers many thought-provoking lessons on creating work, doing your best for different bosses and working out what to do next. In addition, Hugh started around the same time I did, so I found the parallel||10/21/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitITIAPTWC Episode 46 – Dave Dye Part 6||Here’s my 6th, and hopefully not final, chat with Dave Dye. It’s the story of DHM and the various occurrences that created the excellent work at the bottom of this post. As always with Dave, there are many excellent lessons for anyone who is||10/10/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitITIAPTWC Episode 45 – Dan Germain||This week’s guest is the lovely and excellent Mr. Dan Germain, whose name almost looks like ‘Dangerman’. His involvement in advertising, writing, branding and design has almost entirely been in the service of Innocent, which is now a bi||9/27/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitITIAPTWC Episode 44 – Libby Brockhoff||Libby Brockhoff is the current CEO/Founder of the agency Odysseus Arms. You can read all about them here. We discuss how that agency came about, but we also discuss how Libby became one of the founders of Mother. It was a somewhat circuitous route, but||9/17/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitITIAPTWC Episode 43 – Ben Priest||I sent Ben an email a while ago to ask if he’d do the old podcast. He kindly and politely declined, saying he’d done a few already and didn’t want to repeat himself. So I waited a bit then asked him if he’d do a more start-up base||9/3/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitITISPTWC Episode 42 – Jay Coen Gilbert||A bit of a different chat this week: it’s not a start up and it’s not an ad person, but it is someone who is deeply embedded in a conversation we all need to have right now: how do we do what we do in a such a way that it has a positive impac||8/28/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
