PODCASTS BY TWIST
Welcome to TwistCast Productions – the home of podcast productions by creative communications agency Twist.
Here you’ll find every episode of our podcast series CreatingConversations. As we’re a communications agency we thought it would be fitting to talk about just that – things that spark conversations. It could be something that’s happened in the news, it could be a person, it could be a great campaign. We’re going to dig deeper into the art of conversation, and how best to get people talking. We’ve got ideas of our own, but we want different perspective and expertise, so we’re going to be speaking to some really interesting guests too.
EPISODE 1: HEART-SHAPED DOUGHNUTS
Here it is, our very first CreatingConversations podcast! We kick off this podcast series by chatting about some really interesting valentine’s day campaigns!
