The future of all communications is at stake, explains Tim Karr, Senior Director of Strategy and Communications for Free Press. On May 15 the Senate voted to restore Net Neutrality by overturning the FCC’s decision to undo the 2015 Open Internet order. Now the fight turns to the House. While victory is uncertain, Karr says that there are many battlegrounds where Net Neutrality may be won.
He tells us how grassroots campaigns helped to secure the Senate vote, and why Net Neutrality is actually a bi-partisan issue. He also explains how cities, counties and states are taking action to ensure a free and open internet.
Then we discuss a recent challenge to 1,000 applications for translator repeater stations, filed with the FCC. The groups behind the challenge are community radio advocates, concerned that these translators stations would interfere with existing low-power FM stations, should they go on the air. And, finally, we analyze how the great Yanny/Laurel debate is perhaps the first instance of truly viral audio, ever.Show Notes:
