  • Purple Stuff Podcast: The Soda Show!

    I rarely drink soda these days, but it will forever be one of my passions. Everything about soda fascinates me. How it looks! How it tastes! How it’s packaged! How it’s marketed! Every soda has a story to tell, whether it’s a top dog with a million dollar ad campaign, or a no-name br

  • Purple Stuff Podcast: DICK TRACY!

    If someone who’d never previously seen Dick Tracy watched it right this second, I wonder what they’d think. Even if they liked it, could they possibly get why people like me are still so obsessed with it? Without the experience of being “of age” during the summer of 1990, I’m not
