    YKWFU? Suppression of Political Speech

    YKWFU? Suppression of Political Speech

    We're back with a second episode, and it's a heavy but important one. When major events happen, like terrorist attacks and war, suppression of political speech often follows through both official and unofficial means. What is the effect of that suppression on the culture of learning and inquiry that is supposed to be the heart of the higher educational enterprise? And will your co-hosts get canceled if we talk about it? Join us as we dig into this important topic, and send us your thoughts at ykwfupodcast@gmail.com.
