The summer brings five (5) new shows (and a welcome effort to catch up on two months of backlogged emails and other work). So, here they are. The first show, Show #182, April 17, is my interview with Daniel Trottier of the University of Westminster, author of Social Media as Surveillance. Dan’s book, which is […]

At long last, I am posting several new shows from the end of last quarter and the beginning of this quarter. The first show, Show 170, August 7, is my interview with Prof. Woodrow Hartzog of Cumberland School of Law, Samford University and Fred Stutzman of UNC on their article, The Case for Online Obscurity.

I am pleased to post the first four shows of the summer quarter. The first, Show #166, July 10, is my interview with Prof. Brett Frischmann of Cardozo Law, author of Infrastructure: The Social Value of Shared Resources. Brett has written a thoroughly-researched and thought-provoking account of the benefits and challenges of viewing our infrastructure, […]

I am pleased to post two new shows. The first, Show #79, is my interview with Prof. Mark Bauerlein of Emory University, author of The Dumbest Generation: How the Digital Age Stupefies Young Americans and Jeopardizes Our Future (Or, Don’t Trust Anyone Under 30). Mark takes a critical view of the impact of technology on […]

As I sit here and follow the election results (and did I mention, screen within a screen is great — local news in the small box, national news in the main screen), thoughts naturally flow to posting new Hearsay Culture shows. So I’m pleased to post three new shows! When you need a break from […]
