Episode 36: Famous and infamous

Heath Ledger as the Joker, death headline

Guest James Mulholland returns to protect his status as most frequent guest, and to talk about the weird cultural thing that happens when something receives more attention for a peripheral aspect of it than for what it is in and of itself. Yikes, that sounds vague, huh? Don’t worry, we’ve got plenty of weird examples ranging from blockbuster movies to bestsellers to fast food. And we even talk a little about BDSM.
