In honor of Black History Month, we decided to forgo our regularly scheduled programming to have a frank discussion about the realities of working in the advertising industry as a person of color.

On this week’s episode of the Adweek podcast, Yeah, That’s Probably an Ad, we’re joined by creative and innovation editor David Griner, social editor Kimeko McCoy and special guests Kai Lawson, producer and co-host of the podcast Mixed Company and freelance copywriter Bennett D. Bennett, for a funny, blunt conversation about race.
