So to Speak podcast: A history of (dis)information wars in the Soviet Union and beyond
How and why do authoritarian regimes seek to control information? On today’s episode of So to Speak: The Free Speech Podcast, we are joined by University of Maryland Associate Professor Cynthia L. Martin to explore how one country, the former Soviet Union, restricted access to information and stifled dissent — and what changed when that regime collapsed in 1991.
