Make My News Rational Please!


Hello hello, gentle listeners, and welcome to a very special episode of The Media Ate My Brain. Ben Pobjie is dead.

AND: If you are running an anti-poison campaign, is it not important that one avoids pushing pro-poison messages?

So enter a dimension not only of sound, but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land of imagination…
