Setting the Internet on Fire
Recently there has a big hubbub surrounding the Universal Music Group and Megaupload, which of course was covered on Tech News Today. Because they played a clip of the Megaupload song on Tech News Today, Universal Music Group took down that episode of Tech News Today on YouTube. Ira_Sockman, the only TWiT legal counsel, was monitoring the show.
Use the hashtag #FreeTNT and you can use this post by Tom to tell people what is going on.
By the time the music guest was performing, #FREETNT was trending on Twitter in the US.

Brian is going to play a video that is all visual and very confusing to the audio listeners and it is Veronica's job to explain what is happening to the Blindies.

- When Brian mentions that he does not have "bilateral symmetry", he is referring to the fact that he had admitted to having a partially unraveled testicle in a previous episode.
