Lawrence Lessig on Fresh Air

I was in the car the other day, returning home after Christmas shopping, and Terry Gross’s interview of Stanford law professor, founding board member of Creative Commons, former board member of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and geek Lawrence Lessig came on the radio.  I wasn’t able to finish listening to the interview, but it’s since been posted on NPR’s site (h/t Miguel Guhlin).  Check it out!

My local NPR station broadcast a rerun of This American Life last night that made me stop cold and listen.  The episode, entitled “Act V,” centered around a drama program that serves prisons, exposing inmates to Shakespeare through performance.  Click on the plus sign to listen to the program.
