Matt Morgan, the host of Ad Hoc, a show about how and why ads get made, speaks with Ipsos’ Manuel Garcia-Garcia, about what makes some ads more memorable than others.

From jingles, to the ads you saw as a kid on your family’s TV, to the mattress ads you hear on your favorite podcast—ads can be deeply memorable.

Referencing neuroscience principles, Manuel Garcia-Garcia gets to the heart of the matter.
