Your Favorite Podcasts Need Your Help to Defeat Patent Trolls

Earlier this year, a patent troll sued podcasters Adam Carolla and How Stuff Works and they've threatened dozens of other top podcasters with    questionable, expensive lawsuits too. Congress has instituted a bill called the SHIELD Act to stop these patent trolls from taking advantage of content creators, and if you're a fan of any podcasts at all – or a podcaster yourself, you can head over to the Electronic Frontier Foundation to send a message to your representative to support the bill so that we can stop this bullshit before it starts to affect (and potentially shut down) your favorite shows.
