A conversation with Josh Wester on Amazon and content moderation

On this episode of WeeklyTech, I am joined by my colleague Josh Wester, Chair of Research in Christian Ethics at the ERLC, and we talk about Amazon, book removals, and content moderation. A few weeks ago, Josh and I wrote a piece at the ERLC titled “Should Amazon be able to ban books?.” Today we dialogue about Ryan Anderson’s book “When Harry became Sally” and discuss its removal from Amazon as well as some of the underlying issues related to digital governance and questions surrounding Section 230.

Since the original recording of this episode, Amazon has provided some clarity to their decision to remove Anderson’s book from the marketplace.
