Sexy! Who’s Mr. Last-minute fill-in? > > This guy < < Beancast has Dan Goldgeier and David Burn from AdPulp as well as Dirk Singer from Cow. We covered Oprah, Rupert Murdoch giving the finger to Google, and how tech-savvy people need to become now. Download the show directly here. Twitter: TheBeanCast, mtlb, David, Danny G. and Dirk.
At one point, we bring up BBDO Detroit’s closing. Bob raised the point that this now means an influx of A-list talent on the streets. At the risk of giving the proverbial finger to out of work creatives (I don't cover hirings and firings here for that reason), you hear me ask him to prove that. Wasn’t trying to be a dick, but I meant in the bigger picture, that’s the typical mindset people have whenever layoffs are discussed. I don’t think that logic always applies though. While a lot of talented people often suffer in large cuts (and, agencies also use it as an excuse to get rid of dead weight), not everyone who gets fired is A-list material.
