Techdirt Podcast Episode 153: An Interview With Rep. Zoe Lofgren

from the voice-of-reason dept

When it comes to many of the legislative issues of interest to us here at Techdirt, we've always been able to count on at least one voice of reason amidst the congressional chaos: Representative Zoe Lofgren from California. In addition to playing a critical role in the fight against SOPA, she continues to be a voice of reason against bad copyright policy, expansive government surveillance, and the broken CFAA, among many other things. This week, she joins Mike on the podcast for a wide-ranging discussion about these topics and more.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    "When it comes to many of the legislative issues of interest to us here at Techdirt" -- ONLY "many" and particular to here, eh?

    Meaning that on the majority, she's the usual Establishment hack. That's known as "damning with faint praise". -- And deftly done! Unless was unwitting because you're a mediocre re-writer.


    Will you please publish the number of audio downloads each week? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Or is that also too much "transparency"?

      The play stats are public on Soundcloud, smart guy. Not that you care - I know you're just looking for a "gotcha". And you've failed yet again.

    It's always refreshing to have representatives who aren't completely bought out.

    Hats off. Lofgren actually knows what the hell is going on. Nice to hear her voice.

    Good job, TD.
