What is Free Speech? With Adam Goldstein of FIRE

In this episode of Sacred Tension I speak with attorney Adam Goldstein of The Foundation For Individual Rights in Education. We have a wide ranging conversation about free speech law, free speech culture, tech platforms, how free speech interacts with the right vs. the left, and much more. 

You can learn more about the work of FIRE here: https://www.thefire.org/

For 13 years, Adam was an attorney with the Student Press Law Center, giving legal assistance to over 15,000 students, parents, and others. While at the Center, he co-authored their legal textbook, Law of the Student Press. In the past, he taught student media law for Michigan State University’s graduate school of education and advocated for domain name owners in arbitration. He blogs on First Amendment and civil rights issues on the Huffington Post. Adam is a graduate of Fordham University School of Law and Fordham College at Lincoln Center, and is licensed to practice in New York. In his free time, he researches the history of classic American recipes.

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education's mission is to defend and sustain the individual rights of students and faculty members at America’s colleges and universities. These rights include freedom of speech, freedom of association, due process, legal equality, religious liberty, and sanctity of conscience — the essential qualities of liberty.
