In this week’s issue, we’re highlighting up-and-coming brands that are shattering the status quo. Honorees include Allbirds, which Time claimed are “the world’s most comfortable shoes,” Fenty, Rihanna’s inclusive makeup and fashion line and Harry’s, which wants to ditch the macho stereotypes associated with shaving.

This week on the Adweek podcast Yeah, That’s Probably an Ad, we’re joined by senior creative editor Doug Zanger and staff writer Katie Richards to talk about their favorite innovative brands.

Plus, CP+B decides to drop out of award shows altogether, Wendy Clark resigns from Time’s Up leadership amid some hiring controversy and Nebraska has a surprising message for tourists in its new ad campaign.
