SURPRISE NERDS: THIS TWO PART EPISODE IS NOW 3 PARTS! 

LAST TIME MX AND I DID A BASIC OVER-VIEW THAT STIRRED UP A MAJOR REACTION ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE. NEXT TIME WE LOOK AT CONSEQUENCES AND RISK FOR COMICS AND TEACHERS - TWO COMMON TARGETS OF PUBLIC SHAMING. 

IN THIS ONE MX AND I MIDDLE WITH A SET THAT ADDRESSES CENSORSHIP LAWS AND HOW THEY'RE ENFORCED LEGALLY; HOW TO AVOID WASTING TIME IN THE CLASSROOM AND ON STAGE WHEN SOMEONE ELSE IN THE ROOM EXERCISES WHAT THEY THINK THEIR RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH LETS THEM GET AWAY WITH. 

I TEACH MX HOW A LOCAL TV STATION MADE MILLIONS AND EXPANDED NATION WIDE BY FINDING A WAY TO BROADCAST PORN BECAUSE IT'S OK TO SHOW NUDITY AND VIOLENCE IN WHEN THE KIDS SHOULD BE IN BED.
