Global’s DAX takes on How to Fail with Elizabeth Day

DAX will be the exclusive advertising partner for the popular podcast How to Fail with Elizabeth Day.

The two-year deal provides advertisers with opportunities to create bespoke, targeted campaigns through sponsorship, host-read ads and spot ads.

How To Fail with Elizabeth Day celebrates the things that haven’t gone right. Each week, a new interviewee explores what their failures taught them about how to succeed better.

A brand-new series, series 12, launches today with Brené Brown, Research Professor at the University of Houston. Brené has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and is the author of six #1 New York Times bestsellers.

Her TED Talk on the Power of Vulnerability is one of the top five most-viewed TED Talks in the world, with over 50 million views.
