Wired magazine calls him "the man who saved net neutrality." A former industry lobbyist, Tom Wheeler surprised many when the Federal Communications Commission passed a number of consumer-friendly reforms under his leadership. We'll talk with him about the roll back of some of those policies under the Trump administration. We'll also discuss his new book on the history of revolutionary technologies, "From Gutenberg to Google: The History of Our Future."

Guests:

Tom Wheeler, author, "From Gutenberg to Google: The History of Our Future"; former Chairman of the Federal Communication Commission (2013-2017)
