The Marc Steiner Show

10/31/07 Free Speech: Waters, Nader, Thomas


Last month MICA and the Maryland ACLU teamed up to put together a rather unusual celebration for Constitution Day, a holiday that not many people bother to celebrate in the first place.  They put together an event devoted to the First Amendment, and the right of free speech.  Who better to speak on this topic than the trio of John Waters, Ralph Nader, and Helen Thomas?  That’s what someone thought, at least, and they were all brought together for a couple hours.  It turned out great; the auditorium at MICA couldn’t even fit everyone who tried to get in.  So, for those of you that missed it the first time, we’ll be playing it as a two hour special, from noon-2, on The Marc Steiner Show today.  To hear the complete version, because we had to cut a little bit for time and edit a few words here and there, ironically enough, just go to and download the podcast anytime in the next month.

  1. How can I get a copy of what was said by all the guest, esp. Ralph Nader? I don’t know how to download,or have any equipment to download to an ipod or anything like that Is there something I can just click and print. I’ve looked around on the website for this purpose, and didn’t see how to do it.

  2. Can I tell you how much I enjoyed today’s show?! I was unable to attend this gem in person and am indebted to Marc and crew for running it today. Bravo

    Now I have to go listen to the podcast to find out what John said…

  3. Free Speech: Waters, Nader, Thomas
