Trendspotter and Havas PR North America CEO Marian Salzman joins us in the basement to talk about “stuff envy.” Are people not buying they they used to? Are people becoming more frugal or are we just fed up with having so much junk? Is this an issue in the USA or worldwide? We’ll talk about changes to how people spend money and how successful brands are reacting. Whether you’re a consumer or own a company (or both) this is the interview for you.
“Forget about keeping up with the Joneses…we don’t want to keep up with ourselves”
“Shopping isn’t a sport anymore”
“All those retailers whose backbone has been disposable fashion have to rethink it.”
Suzanne Lucas, the Evil HR Lady, is back with some summer wardrobe tips. Maybe that super-casual summer outfit isn’t great for your career. She’ll explain. Doug also tries to give some wardrobe advice…but ends up delivering some fun trivia instead.
Joe & OG share headlines, including a report from Transunion that finally people are more worried about their house payment than their credit card debt. They’ll also discuss a recent report that pregnant women are more likely to be in a car accident….not good news.
