Radio Smart Talk for Monday, May 6:
Does the Constitution have what it takes to keep up with modern America?
Peter Sagal, host of NPR's Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me hit the road to find out. Sagal traveled across the country by motorcycle in search of where the U.S. Constitution lives, how it works and how it doesn't... how it unites us as a nation and how it has nearly torn us apart.
The four-part series, CONSTITUTION USA, premieres May 7 at 9 p.m. on witf-TV.
Stephen Ives, director of Constitution USA appears on the first segment of Monday's Radio Smart Talk to tell us more about the film.
Then we'll be joined by Dr. Richard Beeman, a trustee of the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia to discuss the document itself and what it does or doesn't do and what it means to Americans. That's a question we'll pose to the audience as well -- what does the U.S. Constitution mean to you?
Another question -- if you could enact a 28th Amendment to the Constitution, what would it be?
