What Alex Jones Can Teach Podcasters [Episode 19]

You've probably heard that Alex Jones and his Infowars has been mostly removed from various social and new media sites. And therein lies some lessons for anyone serious about their podcast.

Even if you aren't likely to get yanked for hate speech (which you don't do, right?) you likely are running risks. Yes, even if you're a nice person.
