Internet freedom proponent and activist, Tiffiniy Cheng talks to Damian about how her organization, Fight For The Future, helped defeat the potentially disastrous SOPA and PIPA bills in Congress.

This Spartan Life is an award-winning talk show created by Bong + Dern Productions and produced and directed by Chris Burke, who hosts the show under the pseudonym Damian Lacedaemion. The show first aired on June 28, 2005 and is distributed over the Internet. Created using the machinima technique of recording the video and audio from a multiplayer Xbox LIVE session of Bungie Studios' first-person shooter Halo. Guests are interviewed via Xbox Live within the online multiplayer worlds of Halo.
Some of the comedy in the show arises from holding serious interviews in a chaotic game world, highlighted via game glitches, combat with unruly guests, and the presence of other players who outwardly appear to be unaware that the show is being filmed at all.
