Therefore I Geek Podcast Episode 68, Censorship and Geek Culture

x-men-billboard-hed-2016

In which, Tracy and Dude follow up on the previous podcast on freedom of speech with a podcast on censorship and how it is different for geek culture than it is in the larger American culture.  We discuss the difference between bottom up and top down censorship, the difference between voting with one’s wallet and screaming for censorship of art, and why the religious right of the 80’s and 90’s are both similar and not to today’s third wave feminists and progressives.
