Steal This Show S04E03: ‘Printing A New Reality’, with Cory Doctorow
Icon

Today we bring you the next episode of the Steal This Show podcast, discussing renegade media and the latest decentralization and file-sharing news. In this episode we talk about the 'copyfight,' censorship, and the future of the Internet with Cory Doctorow, sci-fi author and co-founder of Boing Boing.

Cory’s most recent book, Walkaway, is a story of refusing a life of surveillance and control under a high-tech oligarchy and the struggle to live in a post-scarcity gift economy where even death has been defeated.

Over this one hour plus interview we discuss:

– Whether file-sharing & P2P communities have lost the battle to streaming services like Netflix and Spotify, and why the ‘copyfight’ is still important
– How the European Copyright Directive eats at the fabric of the Web, making it even harder to compete with content giants
– Why breaking up companies like Google and Facebook might be the only way to restore an internet — and a society — we can all live with.

Steal This Show aims to release bi-weekly episodes featuring insiders discussing crypto, privacy, copyright and file-sharing developments. It complements our regular reporting by adding more room for opinion, commentary, and analysis.
