Political-ish

Fighting the Tech Titans with Asm. Jordan Cunningham

Episode Summary

California's anti-monopoly law was created before dial telephones - and it hasn't changed since. CA Assemblymember Jordan Cunningham (R-Paso Robles) has serious concerns with this. How is it even POSSIBLE for this horse and buggy era law to govern the tech giants Amazon, Facebook, et al ... well, it probably can't. Listen as Cunningham and Q discuss Amazon, Facebook, monopoly power, Ida Tarbell, Teddy Roosevelt, the California Law Commission and more on this episode. Q has spent decades mastering the ins and outs of CA politics but politics isn’t his sole focus, and he knows it’s not yours either. Political-ish looks outside the realm of politics for insightful and entertaining conversations about history, social justice, pop culture, business, music, and sports, with a dash of politics from time to time. So political...ish.
