All time favorite
This is one of my all time favorite podcasts. Great topics, great guests, great insights.
Republican? Democrat? Unaffiliated? Doesn’t matter. What changes do you want to see in America? Free university? End welfare? Doesn’t matter. Nothing matters unless you have the ear of Congress and none of us do. Congress spends all their time sucking up to billionaire campaign funders who, in the end, get whatever they want. Changing this inherently corrupted system is Lessig’s focus. He speaks clearly and elegantly and his message deserves to be heard by all.
Listening to episode 66 - interesting, but odd, that you’re broadcasting a bull session where you all bat around ideas about possible digital tools you could build, questions you could ask, etc. I guess I’d prefer a tighter podcast.
