What happens when a creative career leads to a self-destructive life?

Philip Slade went from Mac Operator at famed music magazine Smash Hits to art director at Saatchi & Saatchi then to creative director and planning director roles and, eventually, to managing partner of Crispin Porter + Bogusky London. But along the way he had to reckon with his relationship with drugs and alcohol and to himself.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • career mid-points,
  • working in the London agency world in the 1980s,
  • being adopted,
  • and the difficult realities of decades spent making up stories.
