This week, The BuZZ discusses an important and politically-charged subject: net neutrality. Since many of us distribute our projects via the web, and all of us access the web, it makes sense to understand the changes that are coming. We start with an extended interview with FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr who presents what net neutrality is, what the new policy will be, and why they made the change. Then Jonathan and Philip look at the likely impact of the ruling.
Join host Larry Jordan as he talks with Commissioner Carr, Jonathan Handel, Philip Hodgetts and James DeRuvo.
