Good episode? Give it some love!
When we think back on our Saturday mornings, we often remember the ads as much as we do the cartoons. That's the power that a well-crafted corporate mascot has over us. They can make us feel a connection to an otherwise faceless conglomerate. Tony the Tiger would never give me childhood diabetes. He's my friend.
This week we're looking at some of the most beloved - or controversial - fictional prepackaged food spokesperson and we have a great guest joining us. Michael and Richard are going up against Moxie LaBouche of the "Your Brain on Facts" podcast (and book), who, not shockingly, has a brain full of facts about food mascots.
