Smart conversation from the National Constitution Center

Podcast: The future of digital free speech

July 6, 2017 by NCC Staff


On June 7 in Los Angeles, California, the National Constitution Center hosted a program on the future of digital free speech, in partnership with the American Constitution Society and the Federalist Society.

The first half of the program is a one-on-one conversation between Constitution Center president and CEO Jeffrey Rosen and Judge Alex Kozinski of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Listeners can find it right now on the Constitution Center’s YouTube channel and in the coming weeks on Live at America’s Town Hall.

This week's episode of We the People picks up with the second half of the program, when Judge Kozinski was joined by Cindy Cohn, executive director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and Eugene Volokh, the Gary T. Schwartz Professor of Law at UCLA, for a wide-ranging discussion.
