In a candid and wide-ranging discussion Matt talks about the centrality of Free Speech to traditional Left-wing politics and societal progress, why we should reject any talk of Free Speech being a Left-Right issue, and how shutting down debate ultimately serves the neoliberal status quo.  A powerful and informative conversation with a lot of important reminders that it is Free Speech supporters who truly stand on the side of fairness and progress.
