Campaign's Arvind Hickman and Gemma Charles discuss the Power 100, WPP's big fine and the latest ads - then Simon Gwynn talks to guests from Saatchi & Saatchi and Wavemaker about providing affordable accommodation to new talent.

On this week's Campaign podcast, Campaign's media editor Arvind Hickman and deputy editor Gemma Charles discuss one of the big moments in the Campaign calendar: the Power 100, our list of the marketing leaders making waves in the UK.

Arvind and Gemma then discuss the reasons behind last week's move by the US Securities and Exchange Commission to issue WPP with a $19m fine, before moving onto recent ads from B&Q, Lego and Visa.

In the second half of the episode, technology and gaming editor Simon Gwynn is joined by a panel comprising Saatchi & Saatchi's managing director Sarah Jenkins and creative Hemi Patel, Wavemaker business director Lisa Thompson, and Tony Perkins, CEO of affordable housing organisation LHA London.

The panelists discuss the recent expansion of Saatchi Home, the agency's partnership with LHA - and why schemes like this are so important in making the industry accessible to people from a wide range of backgrounds.
