Episode 352 – How Goes Maine and Nevada

Seven pre-rolled marijuana joints in natural-tan papers sit on a mottled white table- three of the joints are elevated above the other four on a stylish black paper box- all are set against a blurred background of an orange-red box with the bottom of un-readable black text centered upon.

A small little stuffed creature- squarish in shape with brown fur, cute black eyes, and a big open red mouth with adorable little pointy teeth- is seen near the lens standing in front of the Washington Monument- set farther back and blurred out. The little adorable stuffed creature is waring a set of pink and white bunny ears sized-to-match.

Episode 341 – Marijuana’s Big Moment

The U.S. Capitol Building is seen in the middle of the frame- small- with the Washington Monument rising up above it and setting the proper scale. The Lincoln Memorial building is seen in front of the base of the Monument and shows the compression in-frame created by the use of a long camera lens. The overall tone of the photo is rather muted, but the Capitol building is brightly lit up with a partially-cloud golden sky behind it. The image feels like there is hope in the darkness.




Anne Donohoe and first-time-guest Tauhid Chappell join host Ben Larson to talk about the latest developments at the federal level for progressive cannabis policy reform, the expanding need for proper social equity programs, and the ever-marching normalization of cannabis in contemporary media. Produced by Shea Gunther.

Episode 336 – Ben and Shea Wrap Up the Year

A close-up rendering of the Mandelbrot Set reveals a dancing outburst of yellow structures- not unlike spiraled seahorses- set against a misty blue-green background. There is a black Mandelbrot bubble in the middle with a smaller one farther up the picture- both hugged by an infection of red.

Producer Shea Gunther joins host Ben Larson to discuss the work that goes into producing Marijuana Today; his history in media, technology, and the industry; and that one twirly frisbee video he once filmed out on a lake in Maine. Produced by Shea Gunther.

Episode 335 – 2020 Holiday Special

A piece of graphic art has green stamped cannabis leaves alongside and on top of a bright evergreen wreath in the middle of the frame. There are very small white and red berries adorning the wreath.
