Category Archive for 'Podcast Summaries'

I think that streaming some of these podcasts can be tricky, and downloading may work better. So let me provide links that allow you to download. Right click (or command click for macs) and “save link as”:

Introductory podcast


Jurisdiction stripping

Article I courts

Supreme Court review


Federal common law

suing government actors



Employment discrimination

I don’t mean to leave employment discrimination out of the podcast fun. I’ve created summaries for the big frameworks or theories of discrimination: disparate treatment, disparate impact, retaliation, and harassment. They are posted in a folder under the “helpful extras” link on TWEN. I also have a podcast on the ADA there because it is different enough that separating it out makes sense. The scripts and recordings are a couple of years old, but the content is still true, so there really didn’t need to be any updating.

Disparate Treatment (right click these links to download)

Disparate Impact




More catching up

After updating and re-recording some of these, all of the podcasts are ready to be posted. The scripts for these are on TWEN in a folder under the “slides and helpful extras” link.

Article I courts

Federal common law, the power of federal courts to make law, or the law to be applied

Supreme Court review


Suing state and local government actors


Catching up

Why does it seem like I’m always behind? I’m slowly catching up on podcasts now that the semester is over. Here is an updated jurisdiction stripping one.

Hey all. I’ve started to update podcasts for this class, and I have two ready to post. The scripts are on TWEN under the slides and helpful extras link in their own folder. And here is the audio:

Last podcast for Criminal Law

The sound isn’t fantastic. I tried to make it sound less like I was recording this in some sort of cave, but I’m not sure I was successful.

Inchoate crimes

also here.

and doctrines of imputation

and here.

Homicide podcast

This podcast includes not just all of the information we studied on homicide (the generic term for a crime that results in death), but also the next topic we will consider, causation. That means you may not be familiar with the topic at the end of the podcast; don’t worry. We’ll get to it.

And you can click here to open a new window. Right click or command click to download.

We have finished two more topics in criminal law.

The theories of punishment:
