Episode 61 Own The Media
Show Notes Episode 61: “Own the Media”
This week host Dave Bledsoe does his best Garfield and explains his love of lasagna, hatred of Mondays and unpacks what billionaire Peter Thiel’s funding of lawsuits aimed at Gawker as threats to the freedom of the press in America. We realize that 99% don’t get that joke, because you have actual lives and do not spend your days obsessively consuming news about the news. As a refreshing change the only political philosophy we will be insulting this week is Libertarianism, which isn’t even a real philosophy, it’s something that only exists after three bowls of killer weed in your college freshman dorm! Along the way we learn about Bubba the Love Sponge, that Dave has a sex tape (everyone was doing them in those days!) and laugh until we pee a little over the name Vandersloot! Come for the lurid tales of Silicon Valley gay sex, stay for the death of democracy!
You really don’t get the Garfield thing at all do you? Do you people even NPR?
Promotional considerations this week provided by Khan Noonien Singh’s Klingon Cuisine, try our still beating Heart of Targh! The show opens with Khan explaining why all Klingon food is served cold, and ends with Kelly Clarkson’s soft lament to lost love.
