In this episode, we explore the culture of offendedness, why they’re offended, and what that means to the rest of us. Later in the program, we’ll speak with a former Playboy executive regarding that publication’s recent move to eliminate nudity and why that might be. Then, we’ll conclude with some thoughts on censorship from a now deceased rock musician and iconoclast, one who often had the final word on why free speech matters more than hurt feelings.
