Is there a campus free speech crisis?

In March, FIRE staff discussed the question. On today’s episode of So to Speak: The Free Speech Podcast, we put the question to others and feature audio from a live debate that occurred on May 8 in New York City.

New York magazine’s Andrew Sullivan and New York University’s Jonathan Haidt argue, yes, there is a campus free speech crisis.

PEN America’s Suzanne Nossel and Acadia University’s Jeffrey Sachs argue, no, there is not.

Freethink’s Kmele Foster moderates.

The debate took place at The Village Underground and was sponsored by FIRE and the Comedy Cellar as a part of “The Underground Debate Series.”
