We kicked off the pod talking about Riposte a self-styled “smart magazine for women” and then looked at adam&eveDBB’s subversion of the Christmas spirit for the new Harvey Nichols campaign. We wondered whether it was ever necessary to kill of cartoon characters after the demise of _Family Guy’s Brian Griffin and finally we reflected on Seth Rogen and James Franco’s Kimye parody.
We then talked about the proposed redevelopment of London’s South Bank after artist Anthony Gormley’s provocative call for developers to either respect what is there at the moment. or tear down then cultural quarter and start again.
