But meeting people behind remarkable creative work and hearing how they treat it is fascinating. Sharing those stories with others on the front end of creating advertising seemed like something that should happen. Maybe it makes all our journeys (and the work) a little more interesting, or fun, or ridiculous.

I’m often asked about my agenda for this project, and that’s it.

I’m Andy Askren, creative director at Grady Britton in beautiful Portland, OR. This little lovechild side-project would not happen if not for the heavy lifting and support of my audio compadre Eric and his company, Digital One.

PS. The name of this podcast was inspired by a poster hanging in our office. Not a new phrase, but this cheery take on it always appealed to me. Order a copy of your very own here.
