This Headline Looked Really Good On Paper


Hola gentle listeners, and welcome to the fifth episode of The Media Ate My Brain. In this exciting chapter, Ben Pobjie and Cam Smith ask:

Is Michael Jackson still dead, or was it all just some incredibly catchy nightmare?

Has News Ltd CEO John Hartigan been having a sneaky nibble out of Piers Akerman’s biscuit tin?

AND: Are the concerned mothers writing letters to the Sunday Herald-Sun too concerned? Are the outraged culture warriors writing letters to the Toowoomba Chronicle too outraged — or not outraged enough?

So turn on, tune in, and drop out for a mind-blowing podcast.
