Why do so many politicians and ideologues suddenly dislike Google, Facebook, and Amazon? Are they too monopolistic, and are they using our data ethically? Also, how can we make broadband more accessible for rural America? And what policies should we put in place in order to fully benefit from the rise of artificial intelligence. Will Rinehart joins me to explore all of these questions in today’s wide-ranging podcast.

Will is the director of Technology and Innovation Policy at the American Action Forum, where he specializes in telecommunication, Internet, and data policy. He is also a Frédéric Bastiat Fellow at the Mercatus Center, and was previously a research fellow at Tech Freedom.
