Going the social distance. The Bad Podcast, created when social lives were limited to social media (thanks COVID), seeks to answer the question that echoes through every corner of the advertising world: is this good? Hosts Amelia and Brian are on a mission to talk to every creative director, copywriter extraordinaire, art directing dynamo, swiss army social strategist, ECD, CCO, PFD, and SOS about what the f*** a good ad is. We’re so curious and SO stationary. So here we are to talk about the bad, the ugly, and what good advertising actually is with insight from the industry’s top creative minds.
