There’s a lot we may never get the full Story Behind. In fact, this topic is probably far from being explored to its full potential, especially within a short podcast episode. But that didn’t stop me -- and my ADD -- from becoming intrigued by its origins, how it works and how it’s used every day without us being aware of it.

But then again, there are those who are aware of it or who think they’re aware of it, and those who are hyper-aware of it. Everyday occurrences like product placement in movies and television, underlying messages in music and maybe even the ability for our brains to hear something one way, but our subconscious can pick up on its reverse, therefore having the potential to brainwash us.

I’m your host, Emily Prokop, and this is The Story Behind Subliminal Messages.

WHAT I SAID AT THE END OF THE EPISODE: But as part of the media, I’m supposed to say that.
