On Lead Balloon, professional communicators share tales of the do-or-die situations that defined public relations and marketing careers--what went wrong, how unexpected obstacles were overcome, and what was learned in the process.

 

With immersive storytelling and a wry sense of humor, host Dusty Weis revisits epic PR disasters, intense communications scenarios, professional crises and half-baked marketing campaigns gone awry, and usually finds a reason to chuckle.

 

Because sometimes, there are important lessons to be learned from someone else's worst day.

 

And sometimes, it's just more convenient than group therapy. Tune in monthly for new episodes. 

Dusty Weis is a former radio news reporter turned PR and content marketing professional, and loves to tell a good story. A Midwesterner at heart, his career has taken him all over the globe to build a background in business, technology, politics and so much more. He's also the founder and president of Podcamp Media, a podcast production agency for businesses proudly based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
