So to Speak podcast: Free speech at the U.S. Supreme Court

On this episode of So to Speak: The Free Speech Podcast, we discuss President Donald Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court and what it might mean for the First Amendment. We also review Anthony Kennedy’s legacy, the free speech cases from this past Supreme Court term, and Justice Elena Kagan’s contention that some of her colleagues are “weaponizing the First Amendment.”

The guests on today’s show are:

Paul Sherman: Senior attorney, Institute for Justice

Bob Corn-Revere: Partner, Davis Wright Tremaine

Walter Olson: Senior fellow, Cato Institute
