October 4, 2010 – Hour 2

Tyler Clementi was a talented Rutgers University student who jumped off the George Washington Bridge in New Jersey after two fellow students hid a camera in his room, taped him having an intimate encounter with another man, and then posted the video on the Internet.  Our guests discuss the role of the Internet and online harassment, as well as the climate for LGBT students around the country.
