Can advertising’s immense power to change behavior be used for good? In this brand new podcast, produced by Intelligence Squared, Myra Nussbaum, President and Chief Creative Officer at Havas Chicago and Dan Lucey, Chief Creative Officer at Havas New York, talk to the people who are harnessing the power of advertising to help people and the planet.

This week, Dan and Myra were joined by Dana Thomas, British Vogue’s European Sustainability Editor, best-selling author, screenplay writer, and podcast host. She began her career writing for the Style section of The Washington Post and served as a cultural and fashion correspondent for Newsweek in Paris for fifteen years. Dana has extensive knowledge of fashion, culture, arts, politics, news, and more.  

 Alongside Dan and Myra, Dana talked about how sustainability has always been part of her life. She also shared the findings of her latest book, Fashionopolis: The Price of Fast Fashion and the Future of Clothes, for which she traveled around the world to expose the dark side of the fashion industry. She talked about the environmental and humanitarian impact of fast fashion, and the problem with brands greenwashing in the name of faux sustainable credentials. She also spotlighted the brands and visionaries making change for the better in the industry and highlighted what the advertising industry can do to promote fashion that does not harm people or the planet.
