It's fall. Halloween is just around the corner and the November election is not far behind. It therefore seems fitting for Candidate ME to delve into one of the true dark arts of campaigns, political advertising.

In the first part of a two-episode look at the ads we all say we love to hate, host Tom Bullock digs into the tricks of the trade – the science, philosophy and creation of political ads. We're all about to get bombarded with them, so think of this episode as a bit of garlic to keep you safe from the political ad onslaught.

If you want to watch the short film on propaganda in U.S. political campaigns we talk about in the podcast, you can find it here.

And rest assured, Candidate ME will get back into local races and bring back our political panel next week.
