This is the place to score black market buprenorphine, a partial opioid agonist used as an alternative to methadone maintenance treatment. It is best administered under the care of a certified physician, but we know that's all a racket anyway. 2 for $10, 1 for $8

The Harris School of Public Policy

Chicago Harris sets the standard for effective public policy leadership. We evaluate policy options based on evidence first, then consider implementation in the real world. No other school shares our commitment to shaping policy in this way. We take great pride in our approach. Our students develop the intellectual tools to tackle the most challenging social, educational, and economic issues facing our world. Harris faculty routinely break ground—and preconceptions—with their research on a wide array of topics including energy, health care, crime, inequality, and early childhood development. Effective policy leaders combine insight, analysis, creativity, and communication. Prepare yourself to lead.

Polka Dot Goebbels

Much like the famous artists of which he is an experimental test-tube spawn, Jackson Pollock and Philip Roth, Jackson Roth demonstrates a consistent fascination with paint splatters and the National Socialist Party. Throughout his career as community radio deejay, Jackson Roth has brazenly defied the conventions normally expected of public figures, such as common human decency and a respect for FCC regulations. His single-minded focus on Nazis and modern art has polarized the WHPK community. Some admire his obsession with the Nazi propaganda minister, while simultaneously being disturbed by his enthusiasm for completely monochrome canvases and art made out of public mens room toilet seats. Jackson Roth is at once an inspiration to the lunatic fringe and a hideous social pariah, despised by people who prefer not to wear socks with sandals. Where does your opinion fall when it comes to Jackson Roth? Listen to Polka Dot Goebbels on WHPK to find out.

Computer Mediated Communication (CMC)

"The lack of social cues in CMC has been found to have a depersonalizing effect. While text-based communication eliminates audio and visual cues, there are other methods for adding emotion. Emoticons, or emotional icons, can be used to display various types of emotions. A smiley face [for example] might reassure the recipient of a message—or be interpreted as sarcasm."

Taking his cue from such conservative visionaries as Robert A. Heinlein and Milton Friedman, Rob S-F boldly intersperses his dissonant and frankly unpleasant tunes with short passages read aloud from Ayn Rand's magnum opus "Atlas Shrugged," pre-recorded and played backwards at double speed to maximize the subconscious absorption of his message of greed, cruelty, and glorious moral bankruptcy.

The Second Best New Show

I went down yesterday to the Piraeus with Glaucon the son of Ariston, that I might offer up my prayers to the goddess; and also because I wanted to see in what manner they would celebrate the festival, which was a new thing. I was delighted with the procession of the inhabitants; but that of the Thracians was equally, if not more, beautiful.

Missionaria Protectiva

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing....only I will remain.

The Best New Show

Oasis. Just all the Oasis you could possibly imagine. You probably haven't listened to over 6 consecutive minutes of Oasis in your life. You're about to listen to 60. You might think "but DJ P3FUN, you can only play 3 tracks off the same album and 4 from a band in a single hour, that's FCC law!" To that thought I respond - what is the FCC going to do when I pull out these hype live Oasis bootlegs with 42-minute versions of Rock 'n' Roll Star? Nothing. There will be Wonderwall every show.
