Last week, the Free Speech Union hosted the launch of Jacob Mchangama’s new book Free Speech: A Global History From Socrates to Social Media, in conjunction with the Academy of Ideas. Jacob gave a short lecture, giving the audience a whistle-stop tour of the history of free speech, then Dr. Joanna Williams and I took turns to respond and Claire Fox did her best to moderate. We then had a lively Q&A. The whole thing is available as a podcast here. Well worth a listen.
