AdVerve - Episode 13 - Bloggers suck

It’s harder for us to title these things anymore since we go off in so many different directions in each show now. The timestamp breakdown gives you a semblance of what we covered. From dudes who love cars a little too much to Angela’s new gigs at Hypios, Culture Buzz and position on Top Sexy Geek lists. The topics we spend the most time on include how blogs are still not taken seriously by “real” journalists (or some ad agencies), and the fear about being too open on them. Then the show devolves into a pop culture ceviche from there.

We also have back a regular feature 5 Minutes With... featuring Matt McDermott of Renegade. (Follow him on Twitter and their agency blog too.)
