The Explicast, Episode Five: What Is Net Neutrality?

This article is more than 5 years old.

It's totally possible that you have already formed a strong position on net neutrality without ever thinking about the bare bones, nitty-gritty details of what it actually means. Many high-profile politicians this week have released strong statements, both for and against the Internet access policy, and the political jockeying can be a little  hard to follow.

But what is Net Neutrality, and how did it become such a viral political talking point?

It's something we all wondered about here this week, and something we tried to answer on this week's episode of the Explicast, a new spinoff podcast project from WBUR Boston and On Point Radio with Tom Ashbrook.

This week's query? What is Net Neutrality?

Our source? Brian Fung, tech policy reporter for the Washington Post.
