It is that time of year – as 2017 draws to a close, we pulled Nick, Hannah, Lisa, and myself back into a podcast to talk about the predictions we made one year ago on episode 234. And despite having to deal with our failed predictions from last year, we dive right into making more predictions for next year.Along the way, we talk about the lessons we are taking away from 2017 and thinking more broadly about 2018. We talk about net neutrality, cooperatives, preemptive state laws, consolidation, and even start with me going on a mostly-unneeded rant about radio. So give the show a listen, and then start forming your own local Broadband and Beers informal group to begin organizing locally around better Internet access!Read the transcript for this show here.This show is 39 minutes long and can be played on this page or via iTunes or the tool of your choice using this feed.You can download this mp3 file directly from here.
