Podcast #34 – How the Telecom Act of ’96 Triggered Popular Resistance


This is our second episode examining the history and legacy of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 in recognition of the law’s 20th anniversary. This time around Prof. John Anderson from Brooklyn College explains how Reagan-era deregulation, culminating in the Telecom Act, triggered civil disobedience on the airwaves along with citizen action that continues to push for communications democracy today.

In College Radio Watch Jennifer Waits reveals the early history of college radio through the story of Haverford College’s station, which went on the air in 1923.

By popular demand we want to turn the Radio Survivor Podcast into a weekly radio program for any non-commercial radio station to broadcast, free of charge. We need your support to do this.

We need to bring our Patreon fundraising campaign to $500 a month to have the necessary resources to make this show broadcast-ready every week. If every listener gave just $1 a month we would reach that milestone in no time. Please see our support page for more details.
