Podcasts we don’t need!

Thanks to Drug Czar John Walters, the Director of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), for the fact that drug war propaganda can now be podcast directly into your head. Apparently, ONDCP's podcasts will deliver "speeches, events, interviews, and the latest information regarding national efforts to reduce drug use in America." "I am pleased that we will be able to provide this service to the increasing number of Americans who use personal audio players to stay up-to-date on the latest issues affecting our nation," as the emperor of the drug war himself puts it. Oh, joy: the advent of PodPropaganda. Stay tuned!
