202 - The Baen Bar/WorldCon Controversy
Feb 24, 2021 Season 2 Episode 2
Jesse Adams, Rob Gilmore, & Allie Charlesworth

It's always something, isn't it? This week we dig into the controversy surrounding the Baen Bar forum, WorldCon/DisCon III, and the removal of Toni Weisskopf as WorldCon's Editor Guest of Honor.  Free speech and censorship (what they mean, and what they don't), how communities define and enforce their standards, and what the fallout means for everyone involved. Enjoy!
