Professor Elizabeth Joh teaches Intro to Constitutional Law and most of the time this is a pretty straight forward job. But with Trump in office, everything has changed. Five minutes before class Professor Joh checks Twitter to find out what the 45th President has said and how it jibes with 200 years of the judicial branch interpreting and ruling on the Constitution. Hosted by acclaimed podcaster Roman Mars (99% Invisible, co-founder Radiotopia), this show is a weekly, fun, casual Con Law 101 class that uses the tumultuous and erratic activities of the executive branch under Trump to teach us all about the US Constitution.

Required Reading

This podcast should be required for all high school and college students no matter their focus. Every America adult should be required to listen. This is an easily digestible civics lesson by an amazingly brilliant teacher and a smooth, easy listening host.

Self Aware

It's amazing how blinding Trump derangement can be. While I agree there are topics relating to the Constitution, the Presidency and government in general, which we all can learn from, but the foundation of hating the current president makes this very hard for rational people to listen to. The constitutional expert does keep it relatively grounded in rational thought and discussion, but Roman's bias is so blatant it just becomes amusing. There are nuggets of good constitutional education to be had, just be patient as you wade through the obvious biases. If the hosts were self aware they'd see this......
