This week on Floor 9, we are joined by Alan Schaaf, CEO of Imgur, and Jake Tapleshay, Head of Creative from Imgur, all about the meme culture! From what makes for a good meme, to how brands can better tap into viral memes, to meme’s real-world impact, this episode is a fun deep dive into memes and what they mean for digital culture and marketing.

As usual, co-hosts Adam and Scott begin the show with some quick news discussions. This week, they talk about Facebook’s Clubhouse competitor, Clubhouse allowing people to tip creators, and Epic’s further integration of Fortnite and Houseparty.
