about

This is our version, our capturing, of the cultural conversation about the subject of suicide as evidenced in recent and modern media. Some of this material is humorous. We are not trying to be flippant about an ultimately serious subject but rather treat it as a universal topic which has been treated humorously, at times, in the culture at large. We seek to present our impression of that cultural treatment.

Listener discretion is advised as some material may be triggering.

This program includes clips from 'The Suicide Hotline' which was an episode of the long-running radio program "Over the Edge" and featured Don Joyce (of Negativland) and long-time caller to the show, Suicide Man.

'Suicide Hotline' and was part of the 'How Radio Isn't Done' sub-series of 'Over the Edge' and can be found in its entirety at archive.org here:
