Episode 6: Courageous Conversation for the Next Generation with Jefferson Shupe
Jessie / September 21, 2023
After spending too much time arguing unproductively on social media as a younger man, Jefferson Shupe sought a way to pass on what he’s learned to the next generation. The result is his YA novel, The Bathwater Brigade. It’s the story of a college society with a tradition of intellectual curiosity and rigor — and when the administration ceases to share these values, its members must find a way to defend them.
