Your Weekly Constitutional, hosted by Stewart Harris: Thursday at 10:00 AM
Your Weekly Constitutional is a public radio show and podcast that focuses upon interesting and controversial issues in constitutional law, from gay rights to gun rights. Produced in partnership with James Madison’s Montpelier, it features interviews with knowledgeable lawyers, scholars, and others about current and historical topics, including church-state relations, states’ rights, and even the constitutionality of secession.
YWC‘s host is Stewart Harris, an award-winning law professor who loves to talk about the Constitution in a fun, accessible way that everyone can understand. He’s spoken with many fascinating people, including United States Senator Rand Paul, a leading critic of the Federal Reserve, former Governor Beverly Perdue of North Carolina, who led her state’s efforts to compensate victims of forced sterilization, and John Bellinger, the former Legal Advisor to the National Security Council. We’ve also spoken with a few less-serious guests, including Peter Sagal of NPR’s hugely popular news quiz show, “Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me!”
Our most popular feature is our Constitutional Quiz, in which we test the knowledge of some of our braver listeners. Would you like to be a contestant? C’mon, it’s fun! Please email us at [email protected] All contestants receive a pocket Constitution from James Madison’s Montpelier, and winners receive a YWC T-shirt.
Your Weekly Constitutional is produced by WETS-FM in Johnson City, Tennessee, in cooperation with the home of the Constitution, James Madison’s Montpelier.
