In an era of mass incarceration, what relevance do our Founders’ intentions for a fair and just legal system have for us today? In our second of four episodes of the Re-vision podcast, we discuss the the Sixth Amendment.
Re-vision is a four-part podcast series about the US Constitution created by PA Humanities. It explores how some of Founders’ revolutionary ideas — like freedom of speech and the right to a speedy trial — apply to contemporary issues. Hosted by Lee Stabert, editor in chief of Keystone Edge, each episode pairs a scholar with a working practitioner to discuss the meaning and intentions of this founding document and its real life implications today. The podcast emerged from the If You Were In The Room project.
Re-vision has been made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of the A More Perfect Union initiative.
