Description

All of us are surrounded by brands. Designer brands. Bargain-shopper brands. Brands for seemingly every demographic slice among us. But have you ever stopped to ask yourself how brands influence you? This week, we look at how companies create a worldview around the products they sell, and then get us to make those products a part of who we are.

So, I'm wondering, do religions work like brands? has anyone done a study to correlate the two? when I listened to this episode, all I could think about was those following a specific faith, and how that Faith gives them the same strength that Lance Armstrong gave the teacher that taught in this episode.

Seems fitting to have a smart water ad. Talk about a useless product

This reminds me of a book Post Politica https://www.amazon.com/dp/0992583780/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_G4RgDbQG5TSFR Hilarious and disturbing I'd say.
