The saga of the Listener 7 academics and their questioning about mātauranga Māori in science continues. In this episode, Free Speech Union Cheif Executive Jonathan Ayling sits down with distinguished Professor Kit Fine, a British philosopher from New York University, who complained to the Royal Society regarding their conduct during the investigation of Professors Robert Nola and Gareth Cooper and called for an investigation of the society itself. Unsurprisingly, the Royal Society was uninterested in examining itself. But Fine still believes that the Royal Society must answer for its bullying, or academics won't feel free to speak on important questions. Jonathan and Prof Fine unpack how institutions like the Royal Society are undermining free speech, and the long-term impacts this is bound to have on academia.
