An Alaskan about-face on net neutrality - We're All Gonna Die - Aug. 4, 2018

August 05, 2018

Net neutrality is a deeply personal issue for a lot of people, so this week on We're All Gonna Die, the team chats with a constituent who tried to convey that to her representative in Congress.

Jennie Stewart, the owner of CustomMousePad.com, talks to us about her conversation with Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska), where she says he gave her a "verbal commitment" to sign onto an effort to save net neutrality currently underway in Congress.

However, Young later said he would not sign the first mechanism needed to force a vote on the issue in the House of Representatives.

Stewart tells us how she feels about the situation, plus the team talks their favorite memes of the week and more.
