From the entertainment world’s newest empire builder, Issa Rae, to dozens of other emerging talents in marketing, media and tech, Adweek’s Young Influentials list is an annual treasure trove of names worth knowing.

In this week’s installment of the Adweek podcast Yeah, That’s Probably an Ad, our team discusses this year’s Young Influentials—and welcomes one to the conversation. BBDO New York copywriter Bennett D. Bennett, one of our 10 young talents defining the next generation of marketing, joins a panel of Adweek staffers to talk about influence and innovation.

We also catch you up on the backlash against Fearless Girl client State Street Corp., which has agreed to pay $5 million to hundreds of women who were paid less than their white, male counterparts.
