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.

Very enlightening

History and government were never my favorite subjects...but I’m so much more invested in politics now since the 2016 election. This podcast explains things in an approachable way and makes me feel more confident in understanding what’s going on!

Informed during impeachment proceedings

I was grateful I had already listened to this series when it came time to listen to the hearings. I felt like I understood the processes a bit more.

A good podcast and idea until the political opinion showed up

It is too bad that a law school professor couldn’t keep her political opinions out of the podcast. I hope for her student’s sake she can keep them out of her classroom
