From the mind of Ray Robinson:
UnSensitive tackles topics that can be hard to talk about, because you don’t know who you might offend. We cut right thru that, acknowledge that the questions offend, and ask them anyway. An expert in the field lets that slide helps us understand why and what we need to know to be better people. Let us know what topics you want to see broached – we’ll take all the blame!
The last couple of weeks in the United States has been among the most tumultuous of our lifetime. At the center of the storm are people that stormed our nation’s capitol building, seemingly spurred on by our president and others to do so. The fallout – the bannings from social media, some platforms losing their host services, and people debating how words can impact action – has really called into question the meaning of freedom of speech. Plenty of people on social media debate what is and isn’t free speech, so we thought it would be smart to bring in an expert on the subject! We talk to law professor and freedom of expression scholar Dr. JoAnne Sweeny set the record straight in a powerful episode you’ll want to share every time someone brings the First Amendment into your conversation!
