In episode 8, MobileCoin's head of business development Brady Forrest interviews Jillian York.  Jillian is the Director for International Freedom of Expression at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and she just wrote a new book called Silicon Values: The Future of Free Speech Under Surveillance Capitalism.  Brady and Jillian discuss why companies like Facebook and Twitter have had such major problems with content moderation, and debate the boundaries between necessary de-platforming and unintended consequences on free speech. Jillian explains the hypocrisy behind companies over-focusing on content like nudity and women's bodies while frequently ignoring hate speech and incitement of violence. Brady and Jillian talk about the differences between content moderation in Germany and the US, and whether it's possible for the internet to become both freer and safer at the same time.
