In this week's episode, we continue our discussion of recent terror attacks through the lens of propaganda used by IS and other jihadist groups or sympathizers. We try to understand the impact of terror propaganda on social media plateforms and see how "news" relegated by terrorists and their supporters serve as a way to promote an "alternate" version of events.

In this episode of the Inquisitive Minds Podcast, we take some time to go over questions that emerged from the tragic events in Paris which happened on January 7-11, 2015. We ask: "Are there limits to free speech?" Can we critique and speak out against anything, including religion? We also react to the various security measures that were announced by the French government, as well as US and Canadian officials. Can better security protect people from more terrorist acts? Can education play a role in the fight against terror?
