The Divide: Gigi Sohn on the FCC, dark money in politics and why public broadband matters
Gigi Sohn, President Biden's former nominee for FCC Commissioner, joins the podcast to discuss her nomination process, and what it says about dark money in politics and the industry at large. We also discuss what her most urgent goals would have been as FCC Commissioner, the state of the FCC's broadband map as it relates to the $42.5 billion Broadband Equity, Access and Deployment (BEAD) program, her concerns about the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) running dry, how she hopes to reframe the public broadband debate and much more.
*This conversation was recorded before President Biden nominated Anna Gomez to serve as FCC Commissioner on May 22.
