Mat Devine, lead singer of the band Kill Hannah, inadvertently began his own popular advice column after Fuse TV asked him to blog about his life on tour. Mat´s humorous and touching column, aptly titled ´´The Raccoon Society´´, gained a lot of traction as his fans sought advice on serious issues such as alcoholism, bullying, and self-mutilation, while also touching upon lighter subjects like dealing with siblings, fashion, and going to prom. After seeing the sheer volume of wide-ranging questions flooding his inbox, Mat realized that the blog was no longer just an outlet for his road memoirs, but a unique and thriving community of music fans worldwide, who trusted him and the other readers enough to discuss some of the most intimate problems they faced. Weird War One is a book for the outsiders who wear their hearts on their sleeves and a true reminder that you are not alone. Listeners will also gain valuable insight and advice from special guests Amanda Palmer, Mikey Way from My Chemical Romance, and Tomo Milicevic from 30 Seconds to Mars. 1. Language: English.

An entertaining illumination of the stupid beliefs that make us feel wise. You believe you are a rational, logical being who sees the world as it really is, but journalist David McRaney is here to tell you that you´re as deluded as the rest of us. But that´s OK - delusions keep us sane. You Are Not So Smart is a celebration of self-delusion. It´s like a psychology class, with all the boring parts taken out, and with no homework.Based on the popular blog of the same name, You Are Not So Smart collects more than 46 of the lies we tell ourselves everyday, including: Dunbar´s Number - Humans evolved to live in bands of roughly 150 individuals, the brain cannot handle more than that number. If you have more than 150 Facebook friends, they are surely not all real friends. Hindsight bias - When we learn something new, we reassure ourselves that we knew it all along. Confirmation bias - Our brains resist new ideas, instead paying attention only to findings that reinforce our preconceived notions. Brand loyalty - We reach for the same brand not because we trust its quality but because we want to reassure ourselves that we made a smart choice the last time we bought it. 1. Language: English.

How to Use News Releases, Blogs, Podcasting, Viral Marketing and Online Media to Reach Buyers Directly The Internet has profoundly changed the way people communicate and interact with each other. It has also changed the way businesses communicate with current and potential customers. In the old days, marketers could only communicate through the filter of expensive advertising or media ink placed by a PR firm. Today, the rules have changed entirely. The New Rules of Marketing and PR shows you how to leverage the potential that Web-based communication offers large and small companies, nonprofits, entrepreneurs, political organizations, consultants, even rock bands and churches. Finally, you can speak directly to customers and buyers, establishing a personal link with those who make your business work. You can reach niche buyers with targeted messages that cost a fraction of your big-budget advertising campaign. Rather than bombard them with advertising they´ll likely ignore, you can focus on getting the right message to the right people at the right time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sean Pratt.

Series 6 of the award-winning BBC Radio 4 comedy starring Christopher Douglas, John Fortune, Stephanie Cole and Sally Hawkins. Ed Reardon, author, pipe smoker, consummate fare-dodger and master of the abusive email, attempts to survive in a world where the media seems to be run by idiots and lying charlatans.In these six episodes, Ed is now a happily-retired author. Not only that but he´s well fed, warm and happily ensconced in Berkhamsted´s premier accommodation of choice for the financially distressed. He has a new member in his writing class, Clive, who is actually impressed by Ed´s writing portfolio. But when an opportunity arises to go on a cruise with Jaz and the band, Ed takes up the offer in order to find creative reinvigoration at sea. In addition, Ed is a surprise hit when he takes part in a new Radio 4 ´topical quiz with a tasty twist´; finds himself in the money when he sells most of his possessions to a themed wine bar owned by the lovely Violet Carson; and gets a job teaching grammar to some clumsy, apostrophe-ridden phishers. Meanwhile, Elgar finds fame when he becomes an internet hit with his blog. Could Elgar be a more successful writer than Ed? Quite probably…. Written by Christopher Douglas and Andrew Nickolds, Ed Reardon’s Week includes supporting roles from Stephanie Cole as Olive, John Fortune as Felix and Barunka O’Shaughnessy as Ping. Ed Reardon´s Week was voted Best Radio Programme by the Broadcasting Press Guild. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christopher Douglas, Stephanie Cole, John Fortune, Sally Hawkins.

Susie begins today´s show with a look at the ´´Douche of the Week´´. That´s right - Susie picks someone from the headlines who needs a bit more attention focused on their unforgivable exploits. Let´s hear more about a Mitt Romney intern who is being charged in federal court with cyberstalking and blackmail, using nude pictures. And he had the creepiness to do this to several women - one was just not enough. What a douche! Next, Susie speaks with comedian Julie Klausner about a very memorable trip to Italy and a crazy experience she had at the Vatican. We also hear a sample from Julie´s new audiobook I Don´t Care about Your Band: What I Learned From Indie Rockers, Trust Funders, Pornographers, Felons, Faux-Sensitive Hipsters, and Other Guys I´ve Dated. Then, in the ´´Try This at Home´´ mailbag, a letter arrives from a frustrated listener. The dilema: Her labia is too large, and she wants help figuring out how to find a qualified surgeon. Susie to the rescue! Have a question? You can call Susie´s hotline at 831-480-5110.
