Tuesday’s HausGuest – Jillian Kay Melchior

One of my FAVORITE HausGuests – Jillian Kay Melchior – is returning to the show.

As is ALWAYS the case with Jillian, there will be FAR MORE to talk about than time in which to do it. She consistently writes about stories that are cutting edge are rarely seen elsewhere. When she does hit on a story that’s already in the news, her perspective and insight is always unique and illuminating.

A month ago, Jillian was on the show (listen to that segment here) and we discussed the University of Northern Colorado’s “Bias Response Team” program. They are directly targeting free speech and creating an exhaustive list of words and phrases that are NOT acceptable on campus.

Just after that show, she published a follow up article:Screen Shot 2016-07-11 at 5.10.34 PM

More recently, there have additional stories on what’s going on at the university:Screen Shot 2016-07-11 at 5.16.42 PM

It’s been picked up and run with elsewhere as well (thanks in NO SMALL part to Jillian and HeatSt):

  • The Denver Post described the speech code patrolling as “weak-kneed”
  • A State Assemblyman’s letter to the university President went viral within the state
  • Other journalists are now writing about it

I’m also going to want to talk about these two stories, as well:

  1. Radical violence:Screen Shot 2016-07-11 at 6.18.39 PM
  2. Green money:Screen Shot 2016-07-11 at 6.18.49 PM
