‘We’re All Gonna Die,’ Ep. 58: An Alaskan about-face on net neutrality
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.
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.
