The Ethical Life podcast: Does regulating social media thwart free speech?

  • 0

Episode 24: Richard Kyte and Scott Rada debate what responsibility Facebook has to control the content we see in our news feeds. In the second segment, they look at the continued struggles companies face in trying to fill open positions and whether this is a true turning point in how Americans view work. And in the third segment, they talk about whether parents should be able to exert genetic control over their offspring.
