Today’s video: Ellen Goodman and Jake Shapiro. Goodman, who specializes in information policy law at Rutgers University‘s law school, and Shapiro, the executive director of PRX, discuss public media’s role in facilitating public discourse, promoting democratic engagement, and empowering citizens to communicate and organize. Their slides and other information about the talk are available here.
