Monsanto 2: The US Army, Vietnam, and Agent Orange

All in all, this is a comedy podcast. But this is definitely one of the darkest episodes I've made. It's really important to me and it's heartbreaking...huge content warning for gruesome body horror. I'm really proud of this one, and despite it all, Amy and Blender Bluid managed to make this one real funny. This episode talks about Monsanto's role in the US imperial machine! We've got warmongering, we've got factories blowin' up, we have a new kind of acne that has literally never been observed before. Hitherto unforseen diseases will unfortunately be a running theme. This episode also tests the limits of what we will put up with when it comes to French people being french. Enjoy!

Monsanto 7: The Good Fight

Barehanded honeykeeping, moms-on-facebook, and deadly scientific coverups are all converging to form the final bell toll for Monsanto's mortal time. With all of the doom-and-gloom from past episodes, you're probably wondering how this company...doesn't...still exist, given its titanic political, scientific, and corporate influence. The answer is it's all of it and it's none of it. We're really going through the ringer this episode with a final act that is so heartbreaking that I was, in fact, crying while reading it.

Monsanto 6: PR and Philanthropy

What would you say the work-life balance is on the Death Star? This episode follows a path down the Monsanto communications rabbit hole. PRAD majors, get your forks! Come eat! Blender Bluid, Amy Do and I try to answer a key question throughout the episode: do the entry/mid-level Monsanto employees....know? Do they know the vibe? To answer that question, we talk about intra-company communication, PR strategies, and track a story straight out of an episode of a Nev Schulman TV show. Oh, we also break into a lengthy discussion on that Lockheed Martin twitter drama discourse; how much ire is appropriate to direct at somebody who works at an evil mega-company?  Follow @BlenderBluid and @HelloAmyDo LIVE SHOW TICKET LINK OCTOBER 1 PLEASE COME!
