This show inadvertently becomes an all-singing, no-dancing, no-tune-recognisable spudtacular, as Stew summarises civilisationas we loathe it with an attempt on the life of a Billy Joel song, and Larry provides what he feels a more appropriate lyric to fit the music of the Gold Coast Suns theme song. This represents a new landmark, and landfill, in radio history, as someone finally sings worse on a show than Larry. Also, Stew and Leapster revive their PoopVision (LLC, Bogota) hypothetical TV channel, and it is explained how painter Jackson Pollock’s lunch-bag was mistaken for his final masterpiece. A paragon of poppycock throughout. CLASSIFICATION WARNING – Immoderate language, uncontrollable rudeness, and toilet and groin references all proliferate. Thus a blanket Jane Austen Warning prevails – i.e. this probably should not be listened to by anyone with either sense or sensibility.
Jessica Helfand and Michael Bierut explore how design works within complex organizations to shape decisions, ideas, products, and more. Guests include clients from many industries and designers in many fields. Recorded at the Yale School of Management.
