'The Grievance Studies Affair'

Last fall, three writers and scholars announced they had submitted 20 fake papers to academic journals to test whether -- as they suspected -- certain fields of study lacked scientific and academic rigor.

Of the 20 papers they submitted before revealing their hoax, seven were accepted, four published, seven were "still in play," and six were retired. The result is what's become known as the "Grievance Studies Affair."

But what does their experiment prove, exactly?

On today's episode of So to Speak: The Free Speech Podcast, we put this question directly to Jim Lindsay, Helen Pluckrose, and Peter Boghossian, who authored the controversial papers.
