The second part with Matt contrasts online activism with physical activism. The power of Technology and how it can bring about unintended consequences to humanity is analyzed.

These shows are part of a new category here at AudioActivism.org called Podcasting–Local Activists. More shows in the future will be interviews with people in my local community and discussion of their involvement in activism. I might even start calling my weekly show Local Activists. Maybe I’ll go back and forth, like I’m doing now, from 3URLs to other subjects. Listen as this place evolves into what it becomes.
