Therefore I Geek Podcast Episode 55, Free Speech and Free Expression

In which, Andrew and Tracy step out of their comfort zones and into Dude’s, discussing the 1st Amendment and free speech–both what it means to us, and what it means in the context of comic books and broader geek culture.  A little heavier and pithier than our normal podcast topics, this one is timely given the current climate of the geek community.

Show Notes:
