It’s a jam-packed podcast this week: Popeyes Chicken Sandwich is back, political ads on Twitter are gone and it’s that time of year again: Brand Genius.

With much of the Adweek staff covering our Brandweek event in Palm Springs this week, we take time to talk about our annual marquee honor: the Brand Genius awards, which is taking place tonight as part of Brandweek. We chat about Brand Save honoree Stand Up to Cancer and our Brand Visionary Chrissy Teigen, about her other role as the unofficial mayor of Twitter.

David Griner and Kimeko McCoy co-host this week’s podcast and are joined by senior writer Diana Pearl and senior editor Robert Klara. Plus, analysis on Twitter’s political ad ban from platforms reporter Shoshana Wodinsky.
