Of all the podcasts out there this summer, one of the more entertaining and useful ones for law geeks is Trump Con Law. It is hosted by UC Davis Law Professor Elizabeth Joh and Roman Mars, co-founder of Radiotopia, a curated collection of independent, thought-provoking podcasts (check it out if you are unfamiliar with it). Professor Joh and Mr. Mars review the unbridled adventures of the executive branch under the Trump administration in the context of U.S. constitutional law. The end result is a targeted lesson in con law based on present-day events. Weeks 1 & 2 focused on Judicial Legitimacy and the Appointments Clause and Removal Power, for example. Can’t wait to see what week 3 will bring us!
Trump Con Law occurs weekly. The podcast is usually a little over 6 minutes in length – so not a HUGE investment in time. If you miss your Con Law class, or merely want to get a leg up on Professor Freeman this fall, give it a whirl! It is also a fun way to stay on top of current affairs.
