I recently reviewed Steve Harrison’s new book here on Adpulp.com, Can’t Sell Won’t Sell: Advertising, politics and culture wars. Why adland has stopped selling and started saving the world.
In this special edition of Ad Chatter, I talked with Steve a little more about his book. We covered a wide variety of topics, including:
- Groupthink in the ad industry
- The difference between the “somewheres” and “anywheres”
- Where advertising recruits its talent when it’s right to take on social causes
- Why Sir Martin Sorrell might pull a Keith Richards and outlast us all
It’s a 47-minute podcast, and I hope you enjoy our discussion.
All episodes of Ad Chatter are now available on Buzzsprout \ Apple Podcasts \ Spotify \ Stitcher \ Amazon Music \ Listen Notes \ Deezer \ Podchaser \ Podcast Addict \ Google Podcasts
