Listen to the Marketing Mind podcast - episode four: the great Christmas ads debate

Welcome to the Marketing Mind, a new podcast from Marketing's editorial team.


Hosted by editor Rachel Barnes, and produced by Somethin' Else, the Marketing Mind is a monthly podcast which explores unusual concepts and new technologies, to help marketers find some creative inspiration. 

This month's Christmas special sees the industry's top creatives cast a critical eye over 2015's crop of festive ads, from John Lewis' annual "cry and buy" to Lidl's humorous, service-oriented campaign.
