Free Speech or Hate Speech?

On today’s show, Mitch Jeserich talks to Tyson Slocum (Public Citizen) about the selection of Trump’s cabinet.

Then, Cat Brooks discusses the controversial speaker Milo Yiannopoulos with Joseph Lavery (Assistant Professor of English at UCB) and Alan-Michael Weatherford (doctoral candidate at Washington University). Yiannopoulos has been invited to speak at UC Berkeley this week, which has sparked fierce debate over whether allowing him to come to campus would be to invite hate speech or to encourage free speech.
