Campaign's senior editors discuss the School Reports, our comprehensive audit of more than 100 UK agencies.

Claire Beale, Gideon Spanier and Jeremy Lee join Omar Oakes to discuss how the team writes the School Reports, what trends emerged this year and how we compare different sorts of agencies.

We also discuss the job reductions that were announced by holding companies this week and what could happen in the ad industry next as the coronavirus health crisis continues.

This episode was recorded and edited by No.8.
