Better Without Billboards is a podcast from Adfree Cities exploring outdoor advertising, why it’s bad, and what we can do to reclaim our public spaces.

We talk to artists, academics, policymakers and activists about how we can challenge the impacts of outdoor advertising from climate to community, children, nature, wellbeing, health and public space.

Podcast archive: Message Recall

Before Better Without Billboards, there was Message Recall – a podcast series created by members of Adblock Bristol discussing the history, tactics, and psychology of advertising in public spaces. Episodes are still available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and Simplecast – covering topics from the manipulative tactics of tobacco advertising, to the rise of digital billboards, to gambling ads and subvertising.
