POT TV – The Mernahuana Zone with Matt Mernagh & Lisa Campbell and produced by Vapor Central CEO Chris Goodwin. Tuesday April 7th 2015, from 7pm til 10:20pm, Weekly weed webcast The Mernahuana Zone celebrates its 200th episode with in front of a stoned studio audience at Vapor Central. TMZ is a pioneering ganja gonzo journalism live webcast with diverse influences creating a mashup best described as prohibitionist performance art. Mernagh & Goodwin have spent a decade combining theatrics and cannabis activism and their webcast began as an extension of these efforts.
However, U.S. state marijuana legalization has created a tremendous media market for the Toronto based TMZ because it’s a leader in producing professional cannabis content. None of the U.S. legal states have venues where people may publicly puff and TMZ showcases Vapor Central uniqueness. During the webcast Mernagh breaks down the fourth wall by taking dabs, sharing joints, offering bong rips, allowing studio questions and debate, while providing prohibition news in an entertaining fashion. They engage in fun stoner shenanigans such as making pumpkin bongs, hotboxing the lounge, and sometimes at home viewers are left to wonder is the audience trying to derail it by smoking the hosts out. Their audience is dedicated and TMZ refers to Vapor Central’s front rows as the people who don’t smoke schwag. Both their live and on-demand downloads from iTunes and SoundCloud continue to build a larger base of loyal listeners and viewers. Goodwin has devoted himself and Vapor Central financial resources to professional webcast production and Mernagh is focused on content development. Their diverse influences (gonzo journalism, comedy, talk radio) create a mashup that is best described as prohibitionist performance art.
