Podcast: Jeffrey Rosen answers your constitutional questions

February 8, 2018 by NCC Staff

 

In this episode, we’re answering questions that you, our listeners, have been asking about the Constitution, with the National Constitution Center president and CEO Jeffrey Rosen.

We’ve been collecting your questions over the past few months from social media, our weekly newsletter Constitution Weekly, and email.

For starters, here were some of the questions answered in this podcast:

Why is the Ninth Amendment so important to understanding the Constitution? What are the unenumerated rights provided for in the Constitution and what were the big arguments about them in the past 100 years? What is the basis for the idea of the separation of church and state as understood by the Founders? And what are the theories of interpreting the Constitution that most apply to you?

This show was engineered by David Stotz and produced by Ugonna Eze and Scott Bomboy. Research was provided by Lana Ulrich and Ugonna Eze.
