This week's podcast features Adam Kissel, director of FIRE's Individual Rights Defense Program, and Robert Shibley, FIRE's Vice President, discussing the ongoing case at Colorado College. As we mentioned in our press release and in numerous blog posts, two students at Colorado College were deemed "violent" and punished for posting a satirical flyer on campus. This episode of FIREside Chats highlights all case points and calls for Colorado College to reverse its decision and apologize to the students for not living up to the promise of free expression it guarantees for all students and faculty.
