New Podcast Series! Clear and Present Danger: A History of Free Speech

Why have kings, emperors, and governments killed and imprisoned people to shut them up? And why have countless people risked death and imprisonment to express their beliefs? What role has free speech played in the struggles for the values that define the aspirations of modern democracies:  Full suffrage, equality of the sexes and the emancipation and empowerment of minorities.
