Mumbrellacast: An alcohol-soaked adland

This week, Mumbrella’s Brittney Rigby started a conversation about advertising’s alcohol culture with an in-depth feature. In this episode, she discusses the key issues and gives an insight into how agency leaders have reacted to the piece.

Over in TV, WIN’s CEO Andrew Lancaster has gained a seat on the Nine’s board in the wake of the companies’ recent affiliate deal. Plus, Ten is taking a comedic look back at 2020… in April 2021. Is the idea past its prime?

And, to mark the 10th anniversary of The Conversation, founder Andrew Jaspan reflects on founding the publication and the speed with which it grew (19:55). And, with publishers reaching agreements with Google and Facebook, Jaspan gives his view on the state of journalism in Australia as well as what the future holds.
