1 :01x01 - A More Perfect Union

May/07/2013
NPR's Peter Sagal undertakes a cross-country motorcycle trip to explore the relevance of the Constitution in modern America, starting with federal power vs. states' rights. Among the issues addressed: medical marijuana, gun control and Obamacare. The journey stops in Arkansas, where a Little Rock Nine member recalls the federal government's role in desegregating Central High School; and Montana, where a gun activist argues that the federal government has usurped powers that belong to the states.

The freedoms enshrined in the Bill of Rights are examined through several high-profile stories, including that of a father of a fallen soldier who sued Westboro Baptist Church members for protesting his son's funeral; and a Rhode Island high-school student who sued to remove a prayer banner from her school auditorium. Also: the Fourth Amendment and privacy are explored with Jennifer Granick (Stanford Law School), private investigator Efrat Cohen and Twitter general counsel Alex Macgillivray.

3 :01x03 - Created Equal

May/21/2013
The high ideals of the Declaration of Independence that "all men are created equal" didn't make it into the Constitution in 1787. It took three-quarters of a century, and a bloody civil war, before the Fourteenth Amendment of 1868 made equality a constitutional right and gave the federal government the power to enforce it. The far-reaching changes created by that amendment established new notions of citizenship, equal protection, due process and personal liberty. Today, those notions are being used to fight for same-sex marriage, voting rights, affirmative action and immigration reform.
