ShockCast Episode 96 – “SOPA for the Soul”

on January 20, 2012 2:00 PM

Happy Friday! It’s ShockCast time. This past week we’ve seen non-stop coverage on SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) on what seems like almost every single site on the web. Instead of going down on “SOPA day” we opted instead to better educate readers on SOPA (and PIPA).

This week’s main topic is all about SOPA and luckily we have a real lawyer on staff (Scott Lipowitz) to break it all down for all you fine listeners out there. For our second topic we discuss our favorite video game cities and what makes them great. All that and the week in news make this week’s show another must listen!

Editor’s note: SOPA and PIPA have been indefinitely postponed today, marking an unprecedented victory of the Internet (and of gamers) over the lobbies and politicians. Can you feel the Joy? I can. Today’s ShockCast was recorded yesterday, and this makes it just a tad obsolete, but don’t  worry, hearing us rant about something that is now in the past is still fun. It’s like opening a vocal (and ranting) time capsule.
