On this episode of the Middle, is creativity dead? Join host Sophie Nadeau as she dives into creativity in the digital age with Google Canada's Miles Savage and Edelman Canada's Andrew Simon – two guys who haven’t given up on chasing a brilliant ideas.

Before working at Google, he worked with many of the brands you know and love, including McDonald's and Unilever.

"Creativity doesn't need to be defined by a channel and I think that's the biggest problem that exists today – we all try to put things in boxes. That's where creativity is getting watered down from what it really is." (Miles Savage)

Let’s be honest. For most of modern storytelling history, white men held the pen and the power. Because they did, the stories we devoured in fiction and journalism came from that perspective. The Internet & social media – for all their problems – has also opened the flood gates to new voices in storytelling. It’s never been easier to find the full rainbow of lenses on story. But, are the established media ecosystem players doing enough to shift to a new normal?

On this episode of the Middle, the business of diversity in storytelling. Host Sophie Nadeau is joined by Uzma Jalaluddin, columnist and author of ‘Ayesha at Last,’ and Andree Lau, the Editor-in-Chief of HuffPost Canada.

If you’d like to continue the conversation you can find all our speakers on Twitter. Sophie is @sophienadeau, Uzma is @UzmaWrites, Andree is @alau2.

"In any movement, you're always going to have a pushback, because people who are entrenched in their power and in their privilege are obviously not going to be happy when they’re told to share." - Uzma
