This week we kick it with VICE's SVP of Sales, Ben Dietz, to talk how VICE owns their authenticity three decades later, their unabashed approach to do content differently, and the effects of creative-led leadership.

Plus, don't miss our thoughts on "sponsorships", a self-serving ad idea via voicemails and Dietz plays #KillBuyDIY.
