John McGowan, Professor of English and Comparative Literature from the University of North Carolina, joins Andy and Elizabeth to discuss the issue of free speech on campus.
This ep was prompted by an upcoming visit on the University of Alabama's campus where Andy teaches. We think through what can be done when hostile speakers come to a campus community.
Elizabeth talks a bit of antebellum and 20c history in terms of free speech, yelling fire, and clear and present dangers.
And then we talk comics and Garry Shandling, of course.
