Professor Elizabeth Joh teaches Intro to Constitutional Law and most of the time this is a pretty straight forward job. But when Trump came into office, everything changed. During the four years of the Trump presidency, Professor Joh would check Twitter five minutes before each class to find out what the 45th President had said and how it jibes with 200 years of the judicial branch interpreting and ruling on the Constitution. Acclaimed podcaster Roman Mars (99% Invisible) was so anxious about all the norms and laws being tested in the Trump era that he asked his neighbor, Elizabeth, to explain what was going on in the world from a Constitutional law perspective. Even after Trump left office, there is still so much for Roman to learn. What Roman Mars Can Learn About Con Law is a weekly, fun, casual Con Law 101 class that uses the tumultuous activities of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches to teach us all about the US Constitution.

All music for the show comes from Doomtree, an independent hip-hop collective and record label based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Just enjoy listening and learning

Thanks to the Donald for inspiring this podcast. Genuinely fascinating and insightful. Doesn't matter what political persuasion you are, or even if your non-American with only a passing interest in interesting stuff, educate yourself with this one.

Used to be good

This used to be pretty good but stopped being educational and turned into anti Trump propaganda.
I just wanted the impartial information not the twisted partisan rhetoric using completely false narrative.
But then, that’s the state of education in US universities. So sad really.
