We’ve got a special edition episode of The Vergecast for you this week. On Thursday, the FCC put out a draft proposal for reversing the net neutrality order of 2015. The Verge has been following FCC chairman Ajit Pai’s actions in restoring “Internet Freedom” and how it will affect the internet for all of us.
Nilay Patel invites news editor Jake Kastrenakes on the show, who has been reporting on this for the past few months, as well as senior reporter Adi Robertson, who reported on the FCC’s net neutrality rules back when this was a problem in 2014. The trio talk about the past, present, and future of the open internet and the FCC’s actions disrupting it.
