DNA Podcast 128 - Who Gates the Gatekeepers?
An anti-film censorship cartoon published in The Film Mercury magazine circa 1926.

In this episode, Rob and Don are joined by Jack Ward to discuss the issue of gatekeeping in our culture. Along the way, the three discuss who the new gatekeepers are, if they’re any different than the old ones, and why people feel the need to censor and monitor the expression of others. All this, and the Horseshoe Theory of Politics, is waiting for you in this episode of The Department of Nerdly Affairs.
