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”.’

Katie was on the BBC!!! You can listen to the segment with her and others discussing racist, misogynist Milo Yiannopoulos being banned from Twitter after harassing Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones, from 24.23-41.50 of this episode of BBC World Have Your Say.

We also discuss “freech” (aka free speech), hate speech, the “right to be a bigot” and privilege. We touched on similar issues on episode 117, where we discussed singer Chris Brown being banned from coming to Australia.

This episode features Katie’s talk ‘Getting Trigger Happy With Trigger Warnings. Mental Health, (dis)ability And Activism’. The full version of this talk is embedded below and you can also listen to the full version and the Q and A following the talk here. You can access the PowerPoint presentation for this talk here and it is also embedded below. This talk was given at the most recent Institute for Critical Animal Studies Oceania conference – see the notes for our 108th episode for links to all of the talks from that conference.

This talk is relevant on an on-going basis but we were particularly inspired to put it out on an episode in light of recent comments by Stephen Fry, which criticised trigger warnings, as well as accusing victims of abuse of ‘self-pity’. He has since apologised for (some of) the comments.

Also covered throughout the episode is: content warnings, trigger warnings and free speech, as well as research that (apparently) shows that trigger warnings are counter-productivewe disagree!

Katie couldn’t fit activist burnout into her talk – but check out our 29th episode (featuring the Melbourne Street Medic Collective) and Plan to Thrive for some resources on this topic.
