Adweek Podcast: Let’s Talk About Young Influentials and Google’s New Device Blitz

We also reflect on the loss of a colleague

Who made this year's elite list of Adweek's Young Influentials under 40? What are Google's chances of supplanting the iPhone and Amazon Echo?


In our weekly podcast, Yeah, That's Probably an Ad, our panel of Adweek writers and editors tackles these questions and some of the week's best ads (including a new campaign from Dollar Shave Club and a mysteriously compelling Instagram effort from Paris).

We also take a few moments this week to share our appreciation for the outpouring of support and condolences after the loss of our longtime colleague Noreen O'Leary, who lost her battle to cancer this past Saturday. In her monumental 31 years at Adweek, Noreen became an iconic figure in the industry, with tough, tenacious and fair reporting that earned the respect of every major executive in the field. 

This week's podcast panel is:

  • David Griner, digital managing editor of
  • Tim Nudd, creative editor of Adweek
  • Lauren Johnson, technology writer at Adweek
  • Marty Swant, technology writer at Adweek
