Dean Jackson, Justin Hendrix / Mar 24, 2024

Audio of this conversation is available via your favorite podcast service.

On Monday, March 18, the US Supreme Court heard oral argument in Murthy v Missouri. In this episode, Tech Policy Press reporting fellow Dean Jackson is joined by two experts- St. John's University School of Law associate professor Kate Klonick and UNC Center on Technology Policy director Matt Perault- to digest the oral argument, what it tells us about which way the Court might go, and what more should be done to create good policy on government interactions with social media platforms when it comes to content moderation and speech.

There is reference to an analysis Klonick produced after the oral argument, as well as an essay Perault co-wrote with Katie Harbath for the Knight First Amendment Institute on their experiences interacting with the government while in public policy roles at Facebook.

A transcript of this episode is forthcoming.
