Blogger, information freedom activist, and sci-fi writer Cory Doctorow joins the gang to discuss the outcome of US anti trust hearings, what's so empty about the idea of "surveillance capitalism, and a start up that was genuinely conceived of by a precocious nine year old.
Also, the UK government rolled out an RPG character maker to get everyone back employed during the pandemic, so this podcast is brought to you by a sports agent, a hotel porter, and three boxers!
Check out Cory's book via his Kickstarter link - we will update these links when the audiobook is released! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/doctorow/attack-surface-audiobook-for-the-third-little-brother-book
