Welcome to our latest AdNews Podcast, or as we more affectionately call it - the AdNews Pubcast, which tips its hat to the fact that the best part of an AdNews journo's job is the great conversations we get to have, often over a beer, with the fascinating people in the industry.

This week’s podcast, produced for us by Nova Entertainment at its Pyrmont Studios, sees AdNews online editor Pippa Chambers and AdNews editor Rosie Baker catch-up with the founding trio of independent media agency Atomic 212.

Its CEO Jason Dooris, chairman Barry O’Brien and chief digital officer James Dixon launched the business back in 2014. Since then the agency has gone on to win the AdNews Media Agency of the Year and a host of new clients such as Origin Energy, which has handed its media business to Atomic 212 following a competitive pitch. It has also managed to poach top talent, as well as ruffle a few feathers with some outspoken opinions.

From talking transparency to agency models, rivals and TV Upfronts, we hit off a range of hot topics with the trio. Check it out on here on iTunes.
