‘HATE’ with Nadine Strossen
4 days ago
The United States is unique in its protection of what some might label “hate speech.” Of course, certain expression is unprotected, like incitement to imminent lawless action and true threats. But expression that is deemed merely offensive or hateful is generally protected. On this episode of So to Speak, we welcome back to the show former ACLU president and New York Law Professor Nadine Strossen. She is the author of “HATE: Why We Should Resist It With Free Speech, Not Censorship.” In this new book, she argues that America’s broad protections for hateful speech are a good thing, and that efforts to censor such speech has historically backfired or been proven ineffective. www.sotospeakpodcast.com Follow us on Twitter: twitter.com/freespeechtalkLike us on Facebook: facebook.com/sotospeakpodcast Email us: email@example.comCall in a question: 215-315-0100Read more »

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.
