AVSEPod Episode 37: Classic Drug PSAs LIVE
We are back and fully rested from the holidays with a special treat for our first show of 2018: a live show that was recorded back in the halcyon days of 2017! Once upon a time, Ryan & Carolyn were joined by cartoonist and Star Wars Minute cohost Alex Robinson to talk classic public service announcement ads involving drugs, including the infamous "this is your brain on drugs" commercial that used to be everywhere. Along the way, they tackle deep philosophical questions (like if having a dad who does drugs will make you do drugs, or if not having a dad leads to doing drugs), engage in some odd and surprising audience participation, and deal with a surprise appearance by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
So crack some eggs, then download and listen here, rate & review us on iTunes or listen via Podbean, Stitcher and Google Play. You can follow the show on Twitter, like our Facebook page, and email us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, be sure to follow Alex on Twitter, and check out his webpage, where you can buy his books and artwork, as well as his podcasts, Star Wars Minute and Godfather Minute.
A Very Special Episode is also part of the Rivercity Podcast Federation, a group of like-minded podcasts from across the internet (but mostly physically in Portland). Check out the other great shows here.
