Monsanto 3: Superfund Sites and Slag

Hello again, y'all! This episode's all about the ENVIRONMENT and it is a real doozy. If you choose for some reason to start with this one, understand that we'd been in the studio for hours at this point. Blender Bluid, Amy Do and I were all simply transcending the mortal form. Anyways, in this riveting episode we talk about Times Beach Missouri, Anniston Alabama, and Soda Springs Idaho's separate disasters connected to Monsanto. There's a surprising amount of horses and Ronald Reagan, but not related to one another despite the fact that he was really into horses. Fun fact for ya. Cheers!

BetterHelp

A woman with literally no water signs in her astrological chart through Pluto, Claire Rufin, joins me to throw away any chances I had at getting sponsored by BetterHelp! I'm working through a lot of my own understanding on the subjects in this episode, including how a CEO who is presumably worth millions of dollars would take to Reddit to address a complaints lobbied by a Youtuber named Memeology 101. Anyways, this episode is about privacy, employees' rights, and big data. I could not have formed my understanding on these subjects without Cathy O'Neill's Weapons of Math Destruction: AWESOME book! But yeah, I think this is a unique take on BetterHelp. Claire was great on this podcast, @claireannalee is her instagram, I'm cracking open a daiquiri with a paper straw in her honor tonight.  Weapons of Math Destruction, Cathy O'Neill 2016 How Corinthian Colleges, a for-profit behemoth, suddenly imploded, Lance Williams, Reveal News Sep 2016 Are Workplace Personality Tests Fair?, Lauren Weber and Elizabeth Dwoskin, WSJ 2014 When Your Boss Makes You Pay for Being Fat, Leslie Kwoh, WSJ 2013 At Talkspace, Start-Up Culture Collides With Mental Health Concerns, Kashmir Hill and Aaron Krolik, NYT Aug 2020 Eat the Rich episode 90: Online Therapy Platforms https://jezebel.com/the-spooky-loosely-regulated-world-of-online-therapy-1841791137 https://foundation.mozilla.org/en/privacynotincluded/betterhelp/ https://www.polygon.com/2018/10/4/17932862/betterhelp-app-youtube-sponsorship-controversy-explained https://pitchbook.com/profiles/investor/461812-87#overview https://medium.com/@alonmatas/when-betterhelp-found-itself-in-a-youtube-controversy-3fd472229a4e https://www.betterhelp.com/privacy/ https://12ft.io/proxy?q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.rollingstone.com%2Fculture%2Fculture-features%2Fbetterhealth-app-astroworld-travis-scott-1255876%2F https://www.betterhelporg.com/ ("Robust Reporting") ...

Monsanto

SEASON 3 LET'S GO! This episode is the first of 8 in a FULL MONSANTO SEASON!!! I'd recommend starting with this episode; it will provide a complete timeline of Monsanto's wacky history and will give us some surprise tools to help us in later episodes. Blender Bluid and Amy Do are the guests for the entire season and girl they are hysterical. This episode is full of scientific abominations, the US government, Mark Ruffalo, and a place coloquially referred to as titty city. Welcome to my magnum opus, and enjoy the view from halfway down! Also I forgot to mention it aloud in the podcast but please come to my live show on October 1st :) The topic will not have to do with Monsanto; it's going to be a banging time.  Follow @BlenderBluid and @HelloAmyDo LIVE SHOW TICKET LINK PATREON LINK SOURCES:  The World According to Monsanto, Marie-Monique Robin 2008 “Incorporated to Be a Sewer”: A Historical Analysis of Industrial Pollution in Sauget, Illinois, Fiona Eckert, Washington University in St Louis Center for Humanities, 2020 Funky Town!
