Wonking Week: Star-Crossed Lovers

In this week’s audio newsletter, we discuss the anxieties of gift giving on Valentine’s Day. In addition, Emily Badger examines the U.S. government’s awkward relationship with cyberspace.

Audio portions for this week’s Wonking Week podcast were drawn from:
- Ambient sound from our second story came from the NBA game that saw Ray Allen’s historic record-breaking three-pointer shot.
- The outro to our second story was taken from an interview with Boston’s Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen.
- The outro to our third story was an instrumental version of Leonard Bernstein’s "I Feel Pretty" from "West Side Story."
- The outro to our interview with Emily Badger was taken from Hilary Clinton’s Internet speech in Washington.
