Name That Type

The podcast I chose to listen to was “Mad Women: The Great Women in Advertising” posted on the wiki by Rida Zehra. This podcast is mainly expository. The host, Terry O’Reilly speaks directly to the listener about famous women in advertising that have had large social and cultural impacts in our society. Through this 26 minute long podcast, O’Reilly uses facts and inserts audio from popular advertisements to “prove” to listeners (in a sense) that women have dominated the advertising industry for years. While I would recommend others who are interested in learning about advertising and the underlying messages it holds, I would not listen to other podcasts from this series because O’Reilly was very formal, factual and scripted.
