Guys, love the pod and have been listening for several years. But very disappointed over the Pepsi/Doritos stuff. Any modicum of investigation would have shown that Indra Noori talked about developing snacks that better appealed to women NOT that they were launching lady Doritos. As is usual with the internet, a writer in the UK spun a dramatic tale that everyone picked up and became indignant about, without understanding what she actually said. The original interview was on the Freakonomics podcast (http://freakonomics.com/podcast/glass-cliff/). I am no fan of Pepsi as a business but I think we owe it to our compatriots in the marketing space not to make challenges worse by misreporting on issues. Was it a PR challenge? Yes. Was it something to be discussed on the pod? Yes. Did you guys need to do a bit more work before discussing it? Yes, I think so.
Thanks for letting me rant!
Yes, the article we cited from the NY Times spells it out. “Lady Doritos” appears never to have never been said by Pepsi and we were misled by the internet meme. The good news is With the CEO having received a pay bump up to $29.6M for 2016, I think she can shoulder some PR flack with no problems.
