Mumbrellacast: Why the ACCC is looking at outdoor, NAB’s nightmare, Vice’s job cuts, the problem with vegans

On this week’s Mumbrellacast, the team dissects the details behind the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s investigation into the outdoor advertising sector, Vice’s round of global redundancies and what the banking royal commission’s report means for adland. (The discussion was recorded a few hours before the resignations of NAB chairman and CEO Ken Henry and Andrew Thorburn.)


In addition, this episode of the Mumbrellacast explores the Australian Press Council’s decision to censure the Daily Mail and nine.com.au over use of the word “transgender”.

This week’s guest is Meat & Livestock Australia’s chief marketer Graeme Yardy, who chats to us about all the Byron Sharp effect, the unlikely tasks involved with putting a campaign together, and how to deal with a problem like veganism.
