He really DID buy Twitter, and other media tales, in Signals & Noise

Maybe it's just that Halloween and Election Day are too close together, but it sure seemed to some of us like this year's flock of TV campaign ads were like mini-horror movies.

This is just one topic we can take up in our regular media panel discussion, Signals & Noise. Our regulars discuss the hot topics in media: Chris Lucas, Assistant Professor at Southern Oregon University's Communication, Media & Cinema program, and Cal Poly-Humboldt Journalism and Mass Communication Assistant Professor Jessie Cretser-Hartenstein.

Listen for a discussion that can include topics as disparate as video-streaming services and the best Victorian novels.

PICK THREE for this month; Chris has all documentaries:

The Territory - forthcoming on Disney+ https://collider.com/the-territory-review-national-geographic-alex-pritz/

Nuisance Bear - https://www.newyorker.com/video/watch/nuisance-bear

The Automat - https://reelgood.com/movie/the-automat-2021
