Episode 9 - Safe Spaces v Freedom of Speech on College Campuses

This week, Joe and Kelley talk about the fine line between maintaining a safe space and allowing freedom of speech. They discuss how this is particularly troubling on college campuses and how it may be resulting in a world where people are unable to deal with challenges to their ideas or beliefs in a constructive way. Plus...our first listener feedback!

Talking points:

Call to action: Based on the topic, what are some good calls to action?

Episode 8 - Artistic Expression and Politics

This week, Joe and Kelley look at new stories where artistic expression goes too far or maybe not far enough. We talk about Kathy Griffin, Julius Caesar as well as our usual musings on the geeky things we did this week and we also talk vaccinations. Seriously, people... just do it.
