Episode for September 18, 2022
Dear 1 to 3 people who read the show notes! You see me and I thank you which is why I’m going to list my phone number and bank pin card number and code below because literally nobody ever reads them and if they do then you probably already have that information. And yet I labor away turning a voice message into text to create these notes! Sigh. The things I do for you three people
Today is “constitution day” in America- whatever that means. Just some fake weird holiday that the constitutional law world created I guess but we never need an excuse to talk to Eric Segall. He is of course a constitutional law professor at Georgia state university in Atlanta where he lives with his wife Lynn and their children. Eric is also one of my best friends and this chat was so much fun. I always learn a lot as well. I think you will really love this talk. In fact I know will.
I can’t believe I am still writing this !
