What does it mean to be a disruptor? For Adweek, it means women who are leading the charge in demanding more diversity, inclusiveness and gender equality in their industries. We spotlight 39 outstanding women doing just that in this week’s issue and our cover star truly exemplifies all of those traits.

On this week’s episode of Adweek’s podcast, “Yeah, That’s Probably an Ad,” we’re joined by features editor Stacy Perman, who sat down with the one and only Samantha Bee to talk about how she got her start in advertising, her thoughts on in-show branding and how she cultivates such a diverse staff.

Plus, Oscar Mayer launches its own cryptocurrency (obviously called Bacoin), sales for Tide continue to do well despite the Tide Pod Challenge controversy and Teleflora shows us what it really means to be a mom.
