"Are you a small business that wants high speed broadband in New York City? You're in luck! There's a competition available to get you just what you need. To compete, you must:
Swim across the Hudson River in freezing water, chanting "I want my fiber", holding onto your laptop at all times,
Pray to the gods to shine their light so you can beg to get some broadband. Offer them a goat as a sacrifice (Vegans can use turnips),
You must show why you really, really, really, need a broadband connection and demonstrate what the "potential impact of fiber on your business and the feasibility of fiber construction to your building."
This bit of sarcastic wit from guest Bruce Kushnick, Exec. Dir. of New Networks Institute, highlights a deadly serious problem: true highspeed Internet access that meets the needs of businesses and residences doesn't exist in many urban centers. Kushnick explains to listeners how they can meet and overcome this challenge, even if Katniss is too busy to help at the moment.
Beginning with his take on new Mayor Bill de Blasio's initial steps to attack the problem in New York, Kushnick discusses how constituents there and elsewhere can leverage existing cable franchise agreements to try to counter some of the negative aspects of the announced Comcast/Time Warner merger. He also presents tactics for influencing local broadband policy, using incumbents cross-subsidization practices against them, and ultimately, doing whatever's possible to facilitate additional competitors with highspeed broadband into urban markets.

The movies based on "The Hunger Games" books are actually based on the globalists plans for OUR future, Agenda 21. Hunger Games is a lightly fictionalized version of the world the elites are trying to force upon us. The actual plan for doing so is called "Agenda 21" and it is already massively affecting you even if you have never heard of it. THAT is the idea. To secretly implement it until you ARE in the Hunger Games. To discuss this, we have Dave H

(Update: See below for a list of the topics we pulled from the grab bag!) From Gaby N.: How much money do you think Catching Fire will gross at the box office? Do you think it will end up being the number one film of the year like the Wall Street Journal predicted? - From Satsuma: Would Gale have approved of Coin's proposal to throw Capitol kids into the Hunger Games at the end of Mockingjay? - From Emily D.: If you had a chance to be a Hunger Games character for a day, who would you be? - From Paulina: Do you have any ideas for future Quarter Quells? - From Anna: What do you think Capitol citizens do for the majority of the year, when the Hunger Games aren't happening?
In Episode 116 of Fireside Chat, we kick things off with a very brief recap of some of the Hunger Games-related events at Comic-Con.
