Bereft of a topic for tonight's podcast, I happened upon a US-funded, Canadian copyright mercenary group at and was astounded by their suggested list for where Canadians could watch legal content online.

I laughed. I cried. I got fellow DyscultureD podcast mate Andrew Currie online to express shared vitriol over the presumption of such a group to claim they protect creativity and somehow enhance artistic risk-taking.

A long effort to be sure, but I hope you enjoy it.
