Episode Twenty – The Media

Released | Recorded

We’re as mad as hell, but we’ll keep on taking it for a bit longer.

It’s the season finale of Season 2! And we dedicate an entire episode to the abyss that is The Media. What is The Media? Noah can’t quite figure it out. Here to help us, we’re joined by comedian Andrew Reid, news correspondent Peter Oliver and musician Teresa Bergman. We research magazines about Kevins, an old timey newspaperman interviewing at Upworthy, creating our own clickbait listicle, being rude to Greg Kinnear, trolling the news media, and Peter Oliver stitches up his own arm. Plus, Teresa Bergman lays down some amazing acoustic tunes!

We now have merch! You can get a snazzy t-shirt or tote bag with our faces on it and support the show with your purchase! The perfect gift for yourself or a loved one (or an enemy?): http://piffle.tictail.com

See us live! piffle! is recorded live at the Vagabund Brauerei in Berlin, Germany. We’ll be back in the fall with a full line up live shows! Check out our events page in September for a recording schedule.

And, of course, piffle! is on iTunes! Please subscribe and leave us a rating and/or review!
