The Great Firewall of China
< 1 day ago
Most Americans are familiar with The Great Wall of China. Fewer are familiar with the Great Firewall of China. The Firewall blocks vast expanses of the world’s web content — and it’s just one of the tools the Chinese government uses to monitor, censor, and even manipulate what its approximately 1.4 billion citizens see online. On this episode of So to Speak, we explore one of the most extensive and effective censorship systems ever devised by a government. How does the Chinese government do it? And why? For answers, we turn to the experts: “Charlie Smith,” the pseudonymous co-founder of anti-censorship group greatfire.org, working secretly in China; Jeremy Goldkorn, a co-founder of the Sinica Podcast and editor of supchina; and Bill Bishop, editor of the popular China policy newsletter Sinocism. www.sotospeakpodcast.com Follow us on Twitter: twitter.com/freespeechtalk Like us on Facebook: facebook.com/sotospeakpodcast Email us: firstname.lastname@example.org Call in a question: 215-315-0100

Humanizes the process and the product
I love all these episodes. They would be outstanding for use in law school. I can see a professor assigning one of these podcasts as an assignment because they are rich in depth and thorough in their coverage of the issues. This episode was particularly fascinating. It not only gives information about the evolution of First Amendment law but also gives a clear and clever picture of how laws develop and the body of law evolves.
