Counter Extremism Project Launches ‘Fighting Terror’ Podcast

(New York, N.Y.) – The Counter Extremism Project (CEP) is pleased to launch the inaugural episode of our new podcast ‘Fighting Terror’. This exciting new podcast will explore different ways we can combat terrorism in society and will feature informative and compelling discussions on topics such as terrorist propaganda, recruitment, and financing, as well as government policies and regulation.

Each episode will feature an expert guest from an area of counterterrorism, joined by our host, CEP Senior Advisor and former European Affairs Minister Lucinda Creighton.

In this first episode, Lucinda Creighton is joined by former EU Security Commissioner, Sir Julian King, to discuss the global leadership in tackling online radicalization and the Regulation on Preventing the Dissemination of Terrorist Content Online (TCO). The pair consider the competing interests of Big Tech, digital rights advocates, and NGOs with regards to content moderation, and how these approaches can be balanced to keep global companies in check and European citizens safe.

CEP Executive Director David Ibsen said:

We are very excited to launch our first podcast and for this opportunity to bring the counterterrorism community together to discuss the most critical issues facing Europe, the United States, and beyond. We look forward to fruitful discussions with some of the leading experts and practitioners in this field as we continue to fight against extremism and terrorism in all its forms.”

The podcast is currently available on Spotify, Buzzsprout, and Podcast Addict, and can also be accessed on the CEP website.
