‘Search Engine’ unshackled

In an interview with the Torontoist, Search Engine host Jesse Brown admits the show was inspired by copyleftists Cory Doctorow and Michael Geist.

At its new home on TVO.org, the podcast can now spread its wings free of CBC’s meddlesome rules on journalistic fairness and balance – the rules still tying the hands of Spark’s producers. Search Engine can now become what it always wanted to be, a platform for unfettered advocacy of exactly one vision of copyright reform. The Doctorow/Geist/Lessig axis has a new champion, and no way is a cabinet minister gonna hang up on them this time!

(Insult added to injury: The interview has yet another horrifically unflattering photograph of the tall, strapping host.)

    I’ll miss Search Engine on the Ceeb. Be interesting to see how it changes. I’m not a huge Jesse Brown fan, but the show was consistently interesting.

    I love Nora but Spark needs to go or get better.
