This week on The Bulletin, hosts Mike Cosper and Nicole Martin discuss the recent self-immolation of protestor Aaron Bushnell, joined by journalist Madeleine Kearns. The three talk about Nikki Haley’s seemingly fated bid for the Republican presidential nomination. The episode ends with fascinating insights into the limits and benefits of free speech as CT ideas editor Bonnie Kristian joins the show to talk about the recent Supreme Court review of Texas and Florida laws restricting free speech on social media.
