Last week was full of TV drama, and not the fun, fictional kind: Roseanne was abruptly canceled after its star posted a racist tweet, Samantha Bee came under fire for her use of the c-word when describing Ivanka Trump (with a few advertisers even pulling out) and everyone was generally angry and confused.

So on this week’s episode of the Adweek podcast Yeah, That’s Probably an Ad, we obviously had to have TV editor Jason Lynch back on to talk about all the controversy. We also discuss Coke’s first alcoholic beverage, Sir Martin Sorrell’s comeback plan and how Las Vegas Tourism created one of the most loved ads in recent memory. Check it out below:


On top of all that, we had tech staff writer Marty Swant on to talk about Toronto’s creative and tech renaissance, starring The Weeknd’s creative director, La Mar Taylor.
