"Bound By Oath": The Institute for Justice's Fourteenth Amendment History Podcast

Highly recommended.

I just listened to all three episodes that have been posted so far, and I highly recommend it: It's fascinating and important constitutional history, engagingly told. The IJ folks of course have their own perspective on the Fourteenth Amendment ("more is more" would likely summarize it), but I expect that many of our readers will share that perspective, and in any event there's plenty to learn from it regardless of your views on unenumerated rights, incorporation, and similar questions.

Our coblogger Randy Barnett, unsurprisingly, makes an appearance -- he's a leading scholar of the subject -- as do various other law professors, who (unlike Randy) are mostly not libertarians.

You can see get the podcast from IJ directly, or from iTunes, among other places.

    "Our coblogger Randy Barnett, unsurprisingly, makes an appearance -- he's a leading scholar of the subject -- as do various other law professors, who (unlike Randy) are mostly not libertarians."

    Should this be interpreted to say Randy is mostly a libertarian?

    I enjoyed the content, but I really dislike heavily post-produced podcasts like this. They have so many different people talking, it's impossible to remember whose voice is whose.
