The second part of our visit to the National Archives, where we'll talk about the actual, original, handwritten United States Constitution. We'll also speak with other visitors as they experience firsthand the Charters of Freedom, which include not only the Constitution, but also the Bill of Rights, and, of course, the Declaration of Independence. And we'll finish our fascinating conversation with conservator Kitty Nicholson.

Join us as we visit the original Constitution of the United States in its high-tech encasement in the Rotunda of the National Archives in Washington, DC. We'll have a fascinating discussion with Catherine "Kitty" Nicholson, one of the conservators who literally preserve and protect that great document every day. We'll also visit the Declaration of Independence and the original proposed Bill of Rights - all 12 of them.

Kitty has lots of wonderful stories, dating back to the very creation of the Constitution. Did you know, for example, that it's not printed on paper, but on . . . . Tune in to find out.

It's time for our first annual Roundup! A Supreme Court Roundup, that is. I'll be talking to several of my learned and articulate colleagues at the Appalachian School of Law about some of the more interesting cases coming before the United States Supreme Court this term. So grab your hat, saddle up your horse and get ready for some serious constitutional ropin' and ridin'. Yeeeee-haaa!

Can we do anything to stop the venomous rantings of groups like the Westboro Baptist Church? Is some speech so hateful that it is beyond the protections of the First Amendment?

Our Prohibition Forum! Or at least as much of it as we could squeeze into an hour's worth of radio.

Was it constitutional for President Obama to kill Osama bin Laden? How about the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen living in Yemen? The answers are more complex than you might think. We talk to John Bellinger, former Legal Advisor to both Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and to the National Security Council. We also speak with Professor Robert Turner of the Center for National Security Law at the University of Virginia.

Are we talking Nazis and bonfires? Or is it something more nuanced? Is every attempt to remove a book from a library a "ban?" We'll talk to a lawyer for the American Library Association and to one of the ALA's critics. We'll also talk to a high school English teacher and a public librarian. Listen up - it's a hot one.

In our second episode on Prohibition, we conclude the bloody tale of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre. By 1929, gang violence had become so brazen than many people started openly calling for repeal of the 18th Amendment.

September 14, 2011 12:14 PM PDT

The first in a series of episodes on Prohibition, which tie in with the new Ken Burns PBS documentary. Former Cook County Police Chief Art Bilek tells the gripping story of the Chicago mob and the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, the single most notorious act of gang violence during Prohibition. Such violence and the inability of corrupt politicians to prevent it eventually led to the repeal of the 18th Amendment.

Well, it's a long, sad tale. We'll tell it with help from Derrick Howard of the Appalachian School of Law and James Loewen, author of "Sundown Towns."
