We have usually relied on public intellectuals to provide facts, ideas, and cultural leadership--though not all have lived up to the ideal of “speaking truth to power.” Today, however, online networks and social media mean we are all public intellectuals, and we have new responsibilities that come with this role.  

Guests 

Dr. Cornel West, professor at Union Theological Seminary and author of, among other works, Black Prophetic Fire.

George Scialabba, author of What Good Are Intellectuals Good For?, and many other works.
