Today, Brenna is thinking about community, academic freedom, and the importance of letting the experts speak, and she’s joined by the newest member of the team for a getting-to-know-you chat.
Brenna referenced the Ian Linkletter interview on Terry Greene’s Gettin’ Air — it’s worth your time! There are lots of news stories about Ian’s case, but the recent one from the Guardian is a good place to start.
