DiMassimo Goldstein launches new podcast about ad industry origin stories. “The A-List” is sponsored by Adhouse NYC and is now available on iTunes.

NEW YORK, March 31, 2017 – DiMassimo Goldstein (, an ad agency in New York City, has just launched a new podcast about the origin stories of some of advertising’s biggest stars. It’s called the A-List and it was produced for Adhouse NYC (, a client of DiMassimo Goldstein.

Host Tom Christmann, who also serves as DiMassimo Goldstein’s Chief Creative Officer, taps into his deep network of advertising superfriends to find out how they got to the top and how others might follow in their impressive footsteps.

The first three episodes include interviews with Rob Reilly, Global Creative Chairman of McCann Worldgroup, Ty Montague, Founder of Co:Collective in New York City, and Greg Hahn, Chief Creative Officer of BBDO New York. New episodes will be released on a bi-weekly basis.

“The thing you come away with is that all of these big stars started out just like all of us: Struggling to get their books seen,” says Tom Christmann, host of The A-List. “It’s inspiring to hear how they broke through and made it, sometimes against all odds.”

The idea was the brainchild of Mr. Christmann and Lauren Slaff, founder of Adhouse NYC, an advertising school that boasts classes taught by the best and brightest in the business. “The A-List is an inspiring action that is meant to simulate what it’s like to get advice from some of our instructors. So when the DiGo team pitched it, I knew it would work.”

To promote the podcast, Adhouse is prepared to give away a portfolio review with an A-Lister to one lucky iTunes subscriber. The promotion coincides with Adhouse’s Summer sign-up drive. The application deadline for the summer session is June 1, 2017.

You can find the A-List on iTunes and at To inquire about being a guest, go to For more information, contact James Nieman at
