In this episode of the UnPodcast, we discuss stories of people who just missed the mark: Scott’s pre-talk deep-tissue massage (and why Alison is the “farter”), not-moms who want a “meternity” leave, “momppreneur” and other verbal disasters, and members of the TeaTox Party. We also take a listener question.

In this episode of the UnPodcast, the business show for the fed up, we look at some examples – DeVry University is being sued; The Wall Street Journal wants to charge for content, but doesn’t want to take the money; some publishers would rather pay you to read than create and produce good content; Facebook is bringing us Instant Articles – that show how the world of content creation is changing.
