At last! A new episode!

Well, kinda. We're not yet resuming production (sorry), but Wayne and Stewart got together via Skype to discuss some of 2020's most pressing issues.

Their interview was part of WETS' 2020 fall fundraiser--so, if you're inclined to support the station that brings you "Your Weekly Constitutional," please consider making a donation.

Two of Stewart's students join us to discuss papers they wrote for his constitutional seminars.

First, Jennifer Bolt tells us about the history of slavery and human trafficking among Asian immigrants.

Then D.T. Christmas talks about, well, breasts.

Join us!

Is there such a thing? Well, there’s certainly something called the Administrative State, governed by something called administrative law. Stewart’s colleague, Akram Faizer, is writing a new article on it.

He and Stewart discuss Akram's ideas and even argue a little bit about them. Turns out that Stewart has some pretty strong opinions on the subject.

Donald Trump likes to compare himself to Andrew Jackson. So do his supporters. So do his opponents, for very different reasons.

Are any of these comparisons valid? We ask a guy who should know: University of Tennessee historian Dan Feller, the Director of The Papers of Andrew Jackson.

This is Part Two of a two-part episode.

In Part One, we told you about Kristine Bunch, who experienced the worst thing that could happen to any parent: the death of her son, Tony.

Then we started to tell you what happened next: a false accusation of arson and murder, a conviction, and more than a decade in prison.

Now we’ll tell you the rest of Kristine’s story.

Kristine Bunch experienced the worst thing that could happen to any parent: the death of her son, Tony.

But then things got worse. Much worse. She was accused of his murder. She was accused of burning him to death.

Join us for a poignant tale of a wrongful accusation and its terrible aftermath.

Nope. Not Andrew Johnson. It's a guy named William Blount, who was kicked out of the United States Senate more than two hundred years ago.

But, like Johnson, Blount was an East Tennessean. Perhaps there's something in the water here.

University of Tennessee historian Chris Magra tells the tale.

Well, it happened. Brexit, that is. As of January 31, 2020, the UK is no longer a member of the EU.

So . . . what's changed? And what happens next? Our go-to Brexit Guy, William Walton, shares his wisdom with us.

Appellate Attorney John Vail recently argued a case in the Tennessee Supreme Court presenting a very important issue: Does Tennessee’s $750,000 cap on "noneconomic" personal injury damages violate the Tennessee Constitution? This case could have a significant impact on so-called "tort reform," in Tennessee and beyond.

Remember the parade last fall? The parade of high federal officials lining up to testify before Congress in the impeachment inquiry?

Now that the Senate has failed to remove Trump from office, it's payback time. Many of those officials are feeling Trump's wrath.

Former federal prosecutor and current D.C. lawyer Benjamin Vernia, whom Stewart previously interviewed about the Mueller Report, sat down with us again and explained all.

Please note: this interview was recorded in late 2019, before the Senate impeachment trial.
