This month’s edition of Delmarva Today: Writer’s Edition is the third in the series on free speech. The first discussed the challenges to free speech on college campuses; the second considered whether free speech is being seriously challenged in civil society today. Our program this month addresses the question of the meaning of free speech in the digital age. It’s clear that the internet and social media have radically changed the nature of communication: the way information is broadcast and received today and perhaps even the way we see ourselves.

Take one word, add two teams, create three definitions and throw in a live audience. That’s Says You! – the last word in radio quiz shows since 1996. Join us for a warm and witty hour of recreational thinking. Five rounds mixing words, associations, pop-culture and live music - all at the expense of the English language. Curious listeners know our motto: It’s not important to know the answers…it’s important to like the answers. If you like Scrabble, crosswords, anagrams, and Jeopardy! — you’ll love Says You!
