Pop Up is your new favorite podcast about commercials. Each episode, a film industry producer (Dillon Wall) and a cultural studies scholar (Daniel Rivers) watch ads and break down the techniques, cultural relevance, and modes of manipulation that are utilized to stick to your brain like a stubborn mold.

Join us this week as we dive into a series of PSAs about marijuana, starting with the DUI PSA released in California shortly before recreational use of weed was legalized. We'll also take a look at a couple of classics, including "Your brain on drugs" and the famous ad from the early 2000s at a fast food drive-thru.
