Look, it has been a tough day for the internet. Wait, aren’t you reading this on the internet?! Uhuh. Does that mean it’s a tough day for you!? Ya, bro! So what happened? Well, the FCC today voted down Net Neutrality laws which stopped corporations from impacting what we see or censoring the internet. While I am sure constitutional lawyers will be fighting this tooth and nail, right now this is a terrible portend of what the future of the internet will look like— at least until we have a new congress or FCC or whatever. Here to discuss this historic and awful thing are Shira Lazar, special guest host Morgan Tremaine and our guest — stand up Ben Gleib.
Ben Gleib is here to promote his new special — Neurotic Gangster which you can stream on Showtime, and the 200th episode of his podcast, “Last Week on Earth”. We spotlight this stuff because, goldarn it, without the internet you can’t download none of it! Shira Lazar calls the day “surreal” and can’t believe it’s happening, and Ben Glein points out Pornhub’s support, saying that when Pornhub gets involved you KNOW it’s serious, and that the head of the FCC just seems like a dumb bro. Watch the video for this fantastic conversation about net neutrality while the video still has the freedom to load.
