The Advertising Hour

Business & Economics Podcasts

The Advertising Hour is just an excuse for me to take at least 60-minutes every couple of weeks to explore the goings-on in my curiosity-plagued mind. Part therapy, part meditation, part study. Mostly, I'm hoping to learn a little more about myself, my contemporaries and my obsessions through the study and discussion of all things advertising. I expect to get plenty distracted along the way. At very least I hope to light-up a few unsuspecting synapses. It's a bonus for us all if this helps to surface unique marketing insight.

#18 No Bullsh*t Marketing w/ Sabrina Chevannes, Managing Director of Complex Creative

11/16/2021
Sabrina is a marketing agency owner, author, chess master, chess commentator and soon-to-be host of the podcast 'No Bullsh*t Talks'. I admire Sabrina's approach to transparency and authenticity. Truly I'm envious that she works for an agency that brands themselves with the tagline 'The No Bullsh*t Agency'. To some, this might seem like a bold statement, but I see it as liberating. I love marketing, but it's true that the industry is full of bullsh*t. It's a beautiful thing when you meet...

#17 Exit Like a Ninja with Dave Schneider, CEO of Shortlist.io

4/5/2021
Sometimes I feel like every marketer secretly wants to be an entrepreneur. That their goal is to build passive income through a side-hustle, quit marketing and then work remotely from the jungles of Peru. I'm not sure why I think this way. Maybe because I've felt this way. Dave Schneider has lived this very experience. I wanted to know whether his experiences matched my expectations, or whether I've mis-sold myself. Dave sold links in the early 2010s and that helped to fund his travel...

#16 The Most Curious Mind in Medellín with Sam Brake Guia, Host of Brains Byte Back and The Loudspeaker Podcasts

3/1/2021
I think curiosity is a characteristic, but it's also a skill. I think it takes persistence and passion to remain curious in life, as there are many obstacles or temptations that can stifle curiosity, if you allow them to. I like to think that I am curious and that I am in touch with my own curiosity. It's something I think about a lot. I love it when I stumble into conversations on this podcast where the guest and I settle in to our curiosities and it leads to new truths, lessons or...

#15 A Conversation Carousel with Maxwell Ivey a.k.a 'The Blind Blogger'

2/6/2021
Note: Sorry that my mic audio is a little sub-par in this episode. I have no idea what happened, I might try and fix it up and re-upload this at a later date with better audio if I managed to improve it. I think it's still plenty listenable, though. This episode was not only fun, but it was inspiring. Max's positive mentality is impossible to miss. He's Mr No Excuses. We talk in detail at the beginning of the episode about Max's former life as a carnival owner and this episode felt like a...

#14 Understanding Data Bias and Ethics in AI with Kasia Borowska, Managing Director of Brainpool AI

1/10/2021
I remember back in 2001 not being able to watch the film AI because it freaked me out too much. My mind wandered and I became overwhelmed thinking about the potential impact AI might have on the world. I still haven't watched that film. I have a love/hate relationship with AI and what I know of its current use and its potential. I'm still not 100% sure whether I study AI because I deeply love the potential positive impact AI could have on the world, more simply because I'm a geek, or...

#13 Creating Out of This World Content with Raj Goodman Anand, Founder and CEO of Goodman Lantern

12/23/2020
Raj shares on the show that when he told his mother he was planning on studying AI, she thought it had something to do with UFOs. I think that she still might be right. Our episode encompasses everything from Raj's life as the founder of a content production agency, Goodman Lantern, to his experience and interests in the world of marketing technology, his history in software engineering, his ambitions as an investor and his study and thoughts on artificial intelligence. In this episode we...

#12 Cure Cancer or Die Trying with Iain Ward, curecancerordietrying.com

12/8/2020
I feel uncomfortable for feeling uncomfortable about typing these show notes. I feel pathetic for even saying this in context of what Iain is experiencing. Earlier in 2020, Iain was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer following the discovery of a tumour during a medical trial. He's 31, has a background in the fitness industry and had no symptoms prior to the diagnosis. He later had brain surgery while awake. He's still being treated and has a prognosis of 5 years. Iain has set himself 2...

#11 Breaking Bread, Ribs and 100 Dollar Bills w/ Tom Libelt, Founder of We Market Online Courses

11/20/2020
11 episodes in and I haven't spoken so much about hip-hop on this podcast, and so I was hyped to jump into conversation with Tom Libelt. Tom is the owner of We Market Online Courses and host of the Smart Brand Marketing podcast. The journey to where he's at today hasn't been a linear one, though. Tom was born in Poland but grew up in America. His love for music led him to train as sound engineer at Full Sail University and he quickly secured a dream rolein the early 2000s, working as a...

#10 The Secrets of Podcasting That Nobody Hears with Alex Williamns of MeCHo Radio

11/7/2020
About Alex Williamns Alex is a serial podcaster, marketer, brother and soon-to-be teacher. He produces, hosts, edits or contributes to more than 5 podcasts, many of which in are in collaboration with his siblings. The podcasts he produces have diverse themes, but the constant between them all is that they all allow time for him and his siblings to bond, learn new skills and are expertly produced and packaged in ways you might expect from leading podcast studios. I love Alex's...

#9 The Podcast of Self-Domination with Natsune Oki, Host of LifeUpEducationTV and Author of The Game of Self-Domination

10/24/2020
How much of procrastination is disguised as learning? Can anyone help you more than yourself? How do you know when self-help is being delivered selfishly? Sometimes I feel like there's so much self-help that I can't help myself. I consume all of it or I ignore all of it. I want to learn everyone's secrets just so that I don't miss out on the one thing that's going to untether me from all insecurities and surface whatever it is that I'm meant to be contributing to the world. I never find it...

#8 Lessons from Interviewing America's Top Leaders with Adam Mendler, CEO of The Veloz Group and Host of Thirty Minute Mentors

10/10/2020
I'm not particularly good at speaking. I figured that Adam Mendler, host of the podcast 'Thirty Minute Mentors', would probably be a good person to take some speaking advice from. He's a revered motivational speaker, CEO of The Veloz Group and regularly speaks with America's top leaders. I think he also likes Seinfeld. I wanted to know how he does that. How does he organise himself? How does it feel to interview such high performers in sports, business...life? What lessons has he taken...

#7 Selling Out with USA Today Best-Selling Fantasy and Science Fiction Author, Russell Nohelty

9/25/2020
Creativity is what keeps me alive and I often don't feel like I'm being very creative. I've always had an internal dialogue and maybe even conflict with what creativity means to me and for me. I don't know that creativity is tied to any specific art form. I do know that for me it's more of a feeling than a result. Once I stumble upon creativity, my goal is anti-gravity. But I can't drift too far, because then who will ever know that I found my creativity? Should that even matter? There's...

#6 The Business of Dating with Michael Katos, CEO of Playing The Field

9/12/2020
This Tweet from creator Kazeem Famuyide highlighted to me what a strange year it's been for sports fans: https://twitter.com/Kazeem/status/1304472473178525698 'Today is the first day in history that NFL, NBA, WNBA, MLB, MLS, NHL, WWE and U.S. Open are all taking place.' Kazeem later noted this may or may not be true, but who cares, all the sports are back! When I was deciding on the episode to release this week, my conversation with Michael Katos seemed to fit perfectly. I love when things...

#5 The Mysterious World of Mentoring with Rotem Carmely, Founder of Clustered

8/29/2020
Mentoring is still such a strange thing to me. It's kind of not a job but sometimes can be. Everybody seems to want a mentor but nobody really knows how to find one. Where the f* are they hiding? Is mentoring a form of management or is it more like coaching? Can you train to be a mentor or does it just *happen*? How do you provide value in return to mentors? Should you pay a mentor for their time? Is it egotistical to call yourself a mentor? Do mentors have to be people you know? What are...

Finding Your Voice with Doc Williams, Founder of Brand Factory Inc.

7/5/2020
You'll hear a lot about his experiences in this episode, but Doc's personal and professional background are so interesting to me. There are people that I speak to and I wonder how they fit so much into one life. I feel like I've lived maybe one life, maybe a life and a half if I've slept well that day. Doc's lived about 5 lives. He's currently streaming his 6th with 'Build With Me'. He's worked at or with VaynerMedia, ESPN, AppSumo, Onnit. He owned the largest outdoor parkour gym in the US...

I'd been threatening this to myself for years, but today I pressed record and the result is episode #1 of 'The Advertising Hour'. I'm mostly here to explore my own thoughts and it's a bonus if you find any light in the thoughts that I share. Part therapy, part meditation, part study. That's why I'm here. I'm hoping to learn a little more about myself, my contemporaries and my obsessions through the study and discussion of all things advertising. Today I get into: ...and much more. Here...
