Listen: What creatives really think of side hustles

It's good to "do stuff outside of advertising that feeds into the advertising that you'll then do", one creative says in the inaugural episode of a new podcast.

In the first episode of The Hush Podcast from the School of Communication Arts, creatives discuss making their own brief, spotting "fake passion projects" and breaking away from routine agency life, and explore how useful a side hustle could be for your advertising career.
