Panel Discussion: The Royal Society and Free Speech ft. Harete Hipango, Damien Grant and Prof. Natasha Hamilton-Hart
Show Notes

Free Speech Union spokesperson Jonathan Ayling moderates a panel discussion between National List MP based in Whanganui Harete Hipango, commentator Damien Grant, and Prof. Natasha Hamilton-Hart of Auckland University on the continuing fallout from the 'Listener Letter' and the pile-on from academics that is now seeing two of the letter's authors under investigation by the Royal Society. The panel questions the rather unscientific assumption from opponents of the letter that 'Might is Right' and asks whether the Royal Society is risking reputational damage by pursuing the investigation. www.fsu.nz/join
