Get a Raincheck on Buy Nothing Day (Audio Commentary Forthcoming)


Later today, I'll be on the NPR show Marketplace doing a commentary that takes some shots at the annual observance of Buy Nothing Day, an anti-consumerist protest spearheaded by Adbusters.

We'll post audio and the script once they are available. If you want to listen live, go here for a map of stations that broadcast Marketplace, which typically airs between 4pm and 6.30pm in your local time zone.

Back in 2000, Jacob Sullum reviewed Culture Jam: The Uncooling of America, by Adbusters' big wheel Kalle Lasn. Read his critique here.
