Ad Age Ad Block

By I-Hsien Sherwood and Alfred Maskeroni

Introducing Ad Block, a new Ad Age podcast. Hosted by Ad Age’s own I-Hsien Sherwood and Alfred Maskeroni, Ad Block features personal, casual chats with big names in the industry. We’ve got one rule on this show: no guests can talk about their company or their clients. Get to know the people behind the ads you love—as they talk about anything but.
