The Breakfast First Podcast

Your Morning Serving
of Industry Insights


On Breakfast First, an Empower podcast series, hosts Evan Dulaney and Andrea Book shoot the grits about advertising, creative media, inspiration and the seedy underbelly of agency life. Because there’s a reason mom always told you to eat breakfast, and it’s the same reason Breakfast First is one of our company values: It sets you up for success. So does learning from the best. Whether you’re a marketer, agency lifer, startup or just someone who loves a good story (or a good laugh), this is one breakfast you don’t want to skip.
