Robert W. McChesney joins us to discuss the economic forces that influence the diffusion of information and the ramifications for democracy.

Bob is an author, activist, editor, and educator. He is a co-founder of Free Press, former co-editor of the Monthly Review, and currently teaches Communication at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign. His most recent book, Digital Disconnect: How Capitalism is Turning the Internet Against Democracy, should be read far and wide.
