Think for yourself…or rather, don’t.

When we are pulled into a story, we believe the world, the characters and situations. Good stories can change the way we see the world – which can be a good thing, or a bad thing. Story is powerful stuff – probably the most powerful stuff on the planet. For 211, a special guest, “Mister E.” stops by.

As a former PSYOPS Specialist, Mister E. has some interesting insights about how story elements can be be used to persuade, dissuade, influence, misdirect, and win the “hearts and minds” of a population…or a consumer.

Join us as we avoid drones, keep the virtual airwaves free, and discuss Truth Pizza.

As Mr. Pinkman might say, “Mind Powers, yo!”
