||ExplicitITIAPTWC Episode 6 – 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.

||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.

||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|
||ExplicitITIAPTWC Episode 41 – George Prest||Here’s my chat with George Prest, former ECD of DLKW, DLKW Lowe and RG/A. He’s now a partner at You and Mr. Jones and a founder of Blood Global.

||CleanITIAPTWC Episode 40 – Danny Brooke-Taylor||Sorry about the gap since the last one (how have you coped?). Anyway, rather than dwell on that, here’s Episode 40… When I emailed Danny to ask if he’d chat with me for an hour he happily agreed, I then said I hoped he’d been insp||8/16/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitITIAPTWC Episode 39 – Vic Polkinghorne||I’m not sure which episode of my start-up series this is, but does that really matter? Of course not! Here’s Vic Polkinghorne on how the excellent Sell! Sell! began, and how it’s still going strong after twelve years. We also the discus||7/30/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitITIAPTWC Episode 38 – Matt Keon||It’s another start-up episode! Well, semi-start-up – I spent about a third of the chat getting some of Matt’s background before delving more deeply into how 18 Feet and Rising came about and all the pros and cons of the path they created for||7/15/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitITIAPTW Episode 37 – Dave Dye Part 5||Continuing the start-up theme, we now have the inception of Campbell Doyle Dye. I remember at the time that it seemed like the ultimate agency dream team: Walter Campbell, creator of many brilliant TV ads, together with Sean Doyle and Dave Dye, creators||7/9/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
