Today’s sponsors: The world would be a better, freer, and happier place if constitutional protections for private property were taken just a tad more seriously. That’s according to our friends over at the Institute for Justice, who have just begun releasing a new season of their legal history podcast,Bound By Oath.Bound By Oathtells the story of how the Supreme Court has cleared the way for government officials to abuse property rights: to trespass on private land without a warrant, to restrict peaceful and productive uses of property, to seize and keep property without sufficient justification, and much more. Featuring interviews not only with scholars and litigators but also with the real-life people behind some of the Supreme Court’s most momentous property rights decisions, the new season explores the history behind today’s civil rights battles. So plugBound By Oathinto wherever you get your podcasts, and start with Episode 1.
