Michael Edwards

down arrow

G3 is joined by Weiss's Mike Edwards to talk about Elon Musk's acquisition of Twitter. What are the implications of just one man having control of the closest thing the world has to a town square? And how can Twitter, under Musk, impact free speech, the establishment of truth in our society, our markets, and the nature of our politics? No one knows for certain but as always, Mike has plenty of thoughtful insights to bring to the table.
