The Bush Years Part One: people were scared, music was angry. The internet was in its relative infancy. The United States was loudly waging war abroad against terror, and quietly raging another at home culturally. Turn That Off! examines the Bush legacy and whether or not GW's image is deserving of the refurbishment it's been getting in the media in this two part episode.

TTO! 16: Badvertising

Advertising: this all encompassing, ubiquitous industry with a global cap topping a trillion dollars is responsible for hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of jobs. Some people imagine millionaire playboys, a la Don Draper, some imagine sarcastic fast food Twitter accounts; and frankly we can't tell which is worse. But, does does advertising really even work? What makes a good ad? More importantly, Turn That Off! asks, what makes a bad ad? In this episode, we display examples of the most horrific, tone deaf, sometimes insidious and even racist advertisements and ask the question: how the hell did this ad get made?
