Shawn Brewster is a fixture in the local music scene and after talking to him about music for the Scene podcast we decided to talk about sports too. He's a phenomenal musician that you really should check out when you have the chance. We talked a lot about the Browns and the idea of Johnny Manziel not being able to take the opportunities given to him as compared to other entertainers.

I met some fine people at a local marketing firm who have a podcast called the thunder::cast so when an opportunity arose with the annual convergence of sports and advertising with the Super Bowl, we decided to co-host a podcast together. I was joined by Jason Therrien, Craig Israel and Eric Crilow to talk about the big game and all the advertising strategies past, present and future surrounding it.

Here are some of the topics we discussed...

  • Branding versus advertising for ROI
  • Budweiser, Coca-Cola and traditional advertising powerhouses
  • Nationwide killing children
  • Fake "banned" commercials
  • To leak your commercial or not?
  • Measuring success in Super Bowl advertising
  • Progressive advertising BINGO
  • Breaking down the actual game for a second

Thanks to the thunder::tech folks and hopefully there will be another chance down the road to do more marketing critique. It sure would have been fun to discuss the Browns uniform refresh and reveal from a marketing and P.R. perspective. We'll see. Find out more about them in the links below.

Dave Sterling is BACK on the podcast with Craig. It's been a bit since Dave was on, but we had an agenda printed out and everything to keep us on track. We discussed the Super Bowl, Peyton Manning, Cam Newton, the Cavaliers in a post-Blatt world, and also David Griffin. In Griffin we trust, apparently. 

Listen in. Comment on Twitter. Let us know what you think. Eat chicken wings.
