Show Notes

My brother in christ, Matt McLean, joins for a jaunty-ass personal episode about society's preventative answer to the war on drugs: DARE! Cops certainly did not get this one right, despite receiving an insane amount of funding. Like bonkers. This loosey goosey episode was so fun to record, and if you like drugs, alcohol, and violence, this episode is for you! Stream Matt's music and follow @bustedbizbureau if you're so inclined. :) KISSES!

Adelphia

Amy Do joins to talk about the meteoric rise and fall of a family cable empire from the 90s. It’s like if Succession took place in a rural company town, had less sexy actors, and added fradulently-funded lesbian arthouse films. Turns out, it only takes one question from a nosy fella to collapse a billion-dollar business.

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!
