Outrageous!!!

I love Mike Pesca, and this is one of my top five podcasts. It’s incredible what he and his staff manage to pack into a 25 minute (approximately) podcast. Also, the segue music is original and funky. An excellent show with humor cleverly thrown in. Wordsmith extraordinaire!

slipping on fact-checking

I've been noticing minor mistakes in your facts these days.Mike, you are really slipping. I think you all need to double check. First, the error about convicted felon Blagojevich now the repeated error with Duhigg. It is this: the idea that Target stores were tracking a young woman's menstrual cycles to determine if/when she was pregnant is not true. this misinformation was delivered in a NYT Sunday mag many years ago about marketing practices but it has since been debunked. Duhigg should be doubly-sure before he introduces hearsay. Come on! Mike, you are really slipping.
