Chatterbox #98 – Media, advertising, and celebrity gossip

Nowadays, people are constantly in contact with media, and advertising is everywhere! This inspired us to make a Culips episode talking all about it. Do you still read the newspaper? Do commercials bother you as much as they bother Maura and Harp? Celebrity gossip is something that has become quite mainstream in Canada and the US. Are you hoping for your own 15 minutes of fame? Check out this episode, and listen to the newest form of radio—the podcast!
