WET021 – Dave Warner of Dave’s Lounge on music, technology, copyright and more

I’m very excited to have Dave Warner on the show. Dave runs Dave’s Lounge, a wonderful podcast featuring “the best chillout, trip hop and downtempo music from independent artists and labels around the world.” 

We talk about much more than music, though. The conversation ranges from independent music to the film industry, the Sony hack, SOPA, the cable industry, Dave’s site What You Pay for Sports, podcasting, the idea of letting people pay you for your work, and all kinds of other things.
