On this episode of Sex & Politics, we are thrilled to welcome Cory Doctorow. He is a prolific fiction, non-fiction and tech writer, and an intellectual property activist. He and Dan discuss his latest book (co-authored with Rebecca Giblin,) Chokepoint Capitalism: How Big Tech and Big Content Captured Creative Labor Markets and How We’ll Win Them Back. They talk about breaking up Facebook, legal and legislative hacks to wrest power from giant corporations, and on writing as a means of self-therapy.
And for the sex part of the show, they reassure a nervous girlfriend that the bit of gay porn her boyfriend watches does not automatically mean he’s gay.
