MEDIA<br />
HEADER



Dedicated to the intellectual appreciation of poop humor, PoopReport gets almost 10,000 readers a day, and serves
over 600,000 pages a month. After running the site for six years, Dave
Praeger
, the founder and editor of PoopReport, may know more about
the manifestations of poop in contemporary culture than, well, anyone.
He's even written a book on that very subject: Poop Culture: How America is Shaped by its Grossest National Product (published by Feral House). He's available for interviews, feature stories, keynote addresses, and bachelorette parties. Email him!

Outside of Saudi Arabia -- where Harvard documents PoopReport as being blocked by the ruling regime -- Dave has been featured by countless media outlets; below are some of the best.
