Net neutrality is a deeply personal issue for a lot of people so we chatted with a constituent who tried to convey that to her representative in Congress.

Net neutrality is a deeply personal issue for a lot of people, so this week on We’re All Gonna Die, the team chats with a constituent who tried to convey that to her representative in Congress.

Jennie Stewart, the owner of CustomMousePad.com, talks to us about her conversation with Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska), where she says he gave her a “verbal commitment” to sign onto an effort to save net neutrality currently underway in Congress.

However, Young later said he would not sign the first mechanism needed to force a vote on the issue in the House of Representatives.

Stewart tells us how she feels about the situation. Plus the team talks its favorite memes of the week and more.

You can read more about Stewart’s meeting with Young here and here.
