Episode 70 of the Smells Like Human Spirit Podcast examines Chapter 5 of Edward Bernays' 'Propaganda'. Chapter 5 features several recurring topics; notably, aspirational culture, the manufacture of new customers, and the need to control the public mind. Guy Evans looks at each of these key themes, and with the help of Mad Men's Don Draper(!), investigates the strength of the emotional connection between ourselves and the products that we buy.


Our guest for Episode 69 of the Smells Like Human Spirit Podcast is Abraham Bolden. Mr. Bolden is a former United States Secret Service agent and author of ‘The Echo From Dealey Plaza’. He was personally appointed to the Secret Service White House detail by President John F. Kennedy after meeting him on April 28th 1961, and as a result became the first African-American to achieve this honor. 

Following the President’s assassination, Mr. Bolden became disenchanted with what he saw to be severe misconduct and corruption amongst his peers. He traveled to Washington in the Spring of 1964 to tell the staff of the Warren Commission about a secret Chicago assassination plot against JFK. Shortly thereafter he was arraigned on federal charges that he had solicited a bribe from a counterfeiting ring that he had helped break, and subsequently spent six years in prison. In this interview, he discusses his incredible story and other related topics. Enjoy!

"If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, is it not possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing it?" - Edward Bernays

Chapter 4 of 'Propaganda' by Edward Bernays is held under the microscope this week in Episode 67 of the Smells Like Human Spirit Podcast. Guy Evans examines how Bernays learned from his peers, Walter Lippmann, Gustave Le Bon, Graham Wallas, and Wilfred Trotter in particular, and subsequently advised governments to exclude their people from important affairs. Instead of encouraging active political participation, he adopted new theories on mass psychology that would reduce individuals to nothing more than consumers, never happy, and never satisfied. A great show as ever so enjoy, and peace!
