So to Speak podcast: ‘The Constitution of Knowledge’ with Jonathan Rauch

The Constitution of Knowledge with Jonathan Rauch

What differentiates Albert Einstein from a madman? How do we turn disagreement into knowledge? How do we know what’s true in a world filled with disinformation, conspiracy theories, trolling, and social media pile-ons?

On today’s episode of So to Speak: The Free Speech Podcast, we are joined by Brookings Institution Senior Fellow Jonathan Rauch to discuss his new book “The Constitution of Knowledge: A Defense of Truth,” which is set for release on June 22, 2021.

Also joining the conversation is FIRE President and CEO Greg Lukianoff.
