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, Governor Beverly Perdue of North
Carolina, who is leading her state's efforts to compensate victims of
forced sterilization, and John Bellinger, the former Legal Advisor to
the National Security Council.
The show also includes regular features such as the "Madison Minute,"
which explores James Madison's life, family and thought, and "This Week
at Montpelier," which describes the fascinating goings-on at Montpelier,
from archaeology to wine tasting.
Our most popular feature is our Constitutional Quiz, in which our Quiz
Lady, Kelly Carmichael from the Center for the Constitution, tests the
knowledge of some of our braver listeners. Would you like to be a
