Fantastic episode. It really reframes the notion of littering. I think this is the greatest conspiracy/ scam that I was not aware of.

@cesarm watch this DW documentary. It references what was discussed in this podcast and focuses on coca cola, interview with coca cola VP was too cringy it was funny!

@cesarm Oh man, you’re exactly right by framing it as a “conspiracy/scam”.

¿Como lleganos a sentirnos culpables de la basura del planeta? ¿Por qué la culpa parece ser del consumidor y no del productor? Todo está en las campañas de marketing que esas mismas compañias productoras pusieron en marcha en los años 50.

This was so good. I’m so mad that how we learned to throw plastic in the garbage and not is due to corporate interests all around. All of our plastic consumption and behaviours were due to education campaigns. And the “crying Indian man”! Oh my lord!

@mm search for the video clip of the Crying Indian man. It is even worse when you see it.
