CCLaP Podcast 24: Author Cory Doctorow

Cory Doctorow

It's Monday Tuesday, which means it's time for another episode of the CCLaP Podcast. Today: a one-hour talk with a personal hero of mine, Cory Doctorow, a popular and award-winning novelist as well as one of the four editors of Boing Boing, currently acknowledged by many as the most popular blog on the entire planet. Cory was in town to promote his latest book, the young-adult activist novel Little Brother; here we talk about the book quite a bit, as well as the rest of his creative career, his political work with such groups as the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and the surprising lack of stress he feels over being one of the most popular bloggers in the world. Also featuring the music of Gui Boratto, Foals, and Sandrine. And don't forget, if you download the MP4 version (linked to below) and listen to it through iTunes, an iPod or iPhone, links and chapters and photos will be at your disposal as well!
