Podcast with Matt Palmer

Liberalism, maps, and anti-trust

I sat down with Matt Palmer last week and recorded a podcast with him last week. Since it is a meandering conversation and is two hours long, here are time stamps for the general topics that we talked our way through.

  • 0:03:30 - Community formation on the internet

  • 0:05:50 - How people become neoliberals

  • 0:07:30 - Housing/Yimby

  • 0:21:20 - Maps and Wikipedia, but mostly maps

  • 0:37:00 - Copyright of GIS data

  • 0:43:40 - Anti-trust

  • 0:55:40 - State of liberalism in the United States

    • 0:58:00 - Liberal GOP for 2040

    • 1:10:40 - How things can go wrong (GOP)

    • 1:26:00 - How things can go wrong (Dem)

  • 1:36:30 - Neoliberal Project’s position in policy making

  • 1:51:20 - Encryption/going dark

As a note, we have very similar conversation style and this is pretty close to a normal conversation between us. It might take a bit to get used to how we move between topics.
