Back Matter 15 from View From the Gutters

Dylan and John were able to collaborate with our West Coast Podvenger friends from View From the Gutters on one of their Back Matter episodes. We had a great time and a lengthy discussion about Copyright, Piracy, and Digital Media.

Some highlights include John talking about viewing the Mona Lisa in person, Dylan reading a book (House of Leaves), and notebook shaming.

Be aware that since this is a View From the Gutters podcast, it is not censored and there are some swear words sprinkled throughout the episode.

We hope you enjoy the episode and we would love to hear your thoughts about the subject
