We start off the show discussing Twitter parodies and satire.
We then transition into a discussion of the events in Ferguson, Missouri, and how they are being broadcast around the world via social media. What exactly is a “free speech zone,” and how do you decide who is a journalist today? We begin talking about Ferguson around the 40 minute mark, if you’d like to skip ahead.
