On this episode we welcome Brent Skorup, senior research fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, to explore his work on the legal history of the often politicized Section 230. Section 230 is a section of the United States Communications Decency Act that provides immunities for website and social media platforms regarding content posted by users and other third-parties - and it is often used as political fodder. Brent helps us break down the highly politicized, famous/infamous, Section 230.
