The 404 1,229: Where we stop and smell the ads (podcast)
Today we'll discuss insidious ads popping up in strange places, using things like subliminal messages, involuntary human placement, and even targeted smells to influence your next purchase.
Leaked from today's 404 episode:

- You know Best Buy is doing poorly when a
positive customer review is news.
manufactured smells are making people shop longer and kill better.
- Jack from our
404 Subreddit created an RSS feed of every 404 episode. Thanks dude!
