The PoopReport Press Room
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.
