This week, the men of GLoP address an issue that should not be controversial, yet somehow it is: freedom of speech on college campuses and in the culture at large. Howard Dean said on Twitter that hate speech “is not protected by the Constitution” (yes, it is). In a recent New York Times Op-Ed, a vice provost at New York University wrote that “We should thank the student protestors, the activists in Black Lives Matter and other “overly sensitive” souls for keeping watch over the soul of our republic.” Hmm. Also, did late night comedy fuel the rise of Trump? A sad farewell the the great Kate O’Beirne (read Jonah’s tribute here), Rob’s going to Cuba, and yes, the now apparently required corn hole joke (by the way, the now classic corn hole episode of GLoP which John references in the show is here).
