It’s funny where a conversation can take you. This week, Kenton and Dan fully intended to talk about the ongoing issue of Net Neutrality, and how it will affect the future media landscape.

But….they didn’t get to it.

Instead, there’s an interesting discussion about radio and television ratings, a wrap up for the first half of Mad Men season 7, Levar Burton’s Kickstarter campaign, and Dan wises Kenton up to one of the greatest WWII movies of all time.
