In May 2006, I launched Hearsay Culture from my office at Stanford’s Center for Internet and Society, where I was then a resident fellow. When I walked over to KZSU’s studios across campus to record my first interview with “Dave,” the anonymous online poker player, I was nervous and wondering whether this would be my first and last KZSU interview. I did not envision that I’d wind up doing 250 shows over 10 years (and counting), or the next sentence.
I’m thrilled to announce that Lawrence Lessig will be back on the show on Tuesday, April 26, 2016 to celebrate Hearsay Culture’s tenth anniversary! Larry was guest number nine on August 16, 2006, and was instrumental in the show’s early success.
Larry will be joining me at Elon for a “live” recorded interview on Tuesday, April 26 from 12:30-2pm in Room 207 at Elon Law at 201 N. Greene Street in Greensboro, North Carolina. The public is invited to attend. No tickets are required. Q&A will follow the interview from about 1:40-2pm, and a reception follows at 2pm. I hope that you can make it if you’re anywhere near Greensboro!
If you’re wondering: we’ll be discussing Larry’s current work on campaign finance reform and fixing democracy, his Presidential run, as well as his reflections on the last 10 years of Internet law and policy. The show for air will remain one hour, with the Q&A as exclusive on-line content. The show will air on KZSU later during the week of April 25.
Thanks much to my employer, Elon University School of Law, as well as Elon Universityâ€™s Turnage Family Faculty Innovation and Creativity Fund for the Study of Political Communication (and my wonderful colleague Laura Roselle) for support to bring Larry to Elon. Please contact me if you have questions, and I hope to see you on April 26!
Note: the full schedule of awesome Spring 2016 guests will be posted tomorrow, April 5, with three more winter shows to follow this week.
