On this episode:

The Democratic National Convention kicked off Monday under the cloud of controversial leaked emails and the resignation of DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Editor-in-chief Steve Barrett, news editor Frank Washkuch, and senior reporter Diana Bradley discuss the week’s high-profile speeches, from Bernie Sanders’ endorsement of now-official nominee Hillary Clinton to Bill Clinton telling the story of Hillary’s accomplishments.

It was also a busy week in food PR. Avocados From Mexico and Rioja wines chose new agencies and Chipotle and Jimmy John’s got friendly on Twitter.

Plus, Golin’s new three-CEO structure and a look behind the curtain of GE CCO Deirdre Latour's leadership style.
