Last month, On the Media, a popular radio program from New York City’s WNYC, aired an episode that questioned free speech values and challenged so-called “free speech absolutism.”
On today’s episode of So to Speak: The Free Speech Podcast, we are joined by Matt Taibbi, Nadine Strossen, and Amna Khalid, who provide direct responses to many of the free speech critiques made in On the Media’s program.
Matt Taibbi is the author of four New York Times bestsellers and an award-winning columnist for Rolling Stone. He also writes a popular Substack newsletter.
Nadine Strossen is a professor of law, emerita at New York Law School and served for 17 years as the president of the ACLU.
