The costs of offending religious sensitivities

So to Speak: The Free Speech PodcastEp. 178
The costs of offending religious sensitivities

A faculty member at Hamline University lost her job. Twelve staffers at the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo were murdered. And Salman Rushdie was repeatedly stabbed. All of them offended certain people's religious sensitivities.

On today's show, we are joined by Amna Khalid and Michael Moynihan to discuss the risks and costs of teaching, talking, writing, and creating art about religion, particularly Islam. We also discuss the recent #TwitterFiles reporting.

Amna Khalid is an associate professor of history at Carleton College and host of the podcast "Banished." Michael Moynihan is a writer, reporter, and co-host of "The Fifth Column" podcast.
