Episode 40: Free Speech: A History From Socrates to Social Media
In this episode of Heterodox Out Loud, we explore the history of free speech, how the understanding of it has changed, and the volatile swings in public opinion about this core value.
Our guest is Jacob Mchangama, a Danish lawyer, human-rights advocate, and social commentator. He is the founder and director of Justitia, a Copenhagen-based think tank focusing on human rights, freedom of speech, and the rule of law. He’s also the author of the acclaimed new book, “Free Speech: A History from Socrates to Social Media.”
