AdVerve - Episode 21 - The Death of Media

If newspapers weren’t dead, they are now after we killed them. Well, with a little help from Ben Kunz, director of strategic planning at Mediassociates, the blog Thought Gadgets, as well as a Business Week column. From natural disasters to that 52” HDTV you’re buying this weekend, he helps us deconstruct how media has changed—and the ways it won’t. Newspapers? Meh. Who needs paper with ink smudges anyway. At some point, we manage to drag Twitter into the fray, kicking and screaming.

Bitches, We're a Top 100 Small Business Podcast!

Where in the ranking, we don't know, but we're gonna make like our moms and imagine that the number is 1. (And you're all, "Wait, there are 100 podcasts out there in the world?" YES! There are! And AdVerve's a Top 100 Small Business one!)

Check us out in the "Marketing and Sales" section of the SMB Trendwire list, along with our homies fo' life, Marketing Over Coffee and The BeanCast. Description is refreshingly sparse: "This is a podcast about advertising and marketing." Thanks for noticing, guys. But for those rare few that are all, "INSUFFICIENT DATA," we go by a simple philosophy that leads to a thorny description.

We're about the culture of advertising: the serious stuff, the not-so-serious stuff, the boring stuff and the Gold™. And the culture of advertising draws from everything. So in the lamentable event that you lack an agency water cooler, or just aren't cool enough to stand there, give us a listen and we'll give you the what's-what.

You are jealous, we can smell it, but no worries, we share the wealth. Download our latest episode  (a delectable primer on AD LAW!) directly here. Or subscribe via iTunes: Bill Green and Angela Natividad - AdVerve - AdVerve
