This show features philosopher Paul-Mikhail Catapang Podosky on the free speech and cancel culture debate.

It covers the (in)famous ‘A Letter on Justice and Open Debate’ published in Harper’s Magazine and the lesser known ‘A More Specific Letter on Justice and Open Debate’.

We also cover some common misunderstandings of free speech (supporting free speech doesn’t mean actively platforming the most harmful speech above all others!), the way in which discrimination can be subtly embedded into language and the documentary 13th.

For more on similar issues around cancel culture, check out our 238th episode ‘In Defence of Virtue Signalling – Responding to Common Criticisms of the Left’.

You can also listen to Paul on Freedom of Species: ‘Moving Beyond Killing Animals “Humanely”.’
