Show notes

First up this week, one of Canada’s leading experts on internet regulation and e-commerce law, Michael Geist, returns to the podcast to dissect Bill C-11, aka the Online Streaming Act, as Senate committees get underway. Geist, who often butts heads with the music industry, explains where there’s agreement and conflict between entertainment companies, streaming services, and the government with regards to the new law, how it could be implemented, which aims to regulate streaming services such as Spotify and Netflix in order to promote and fund Canadian artistic content.

As well, guitarist, songwriter, and producer Jeff Gunn returns to talk about his own musical and professional evolution, music education, playing at Ringo Starr’s birthday party, and a lot more.
