Should America's Constitution be followed strictly "as written" in the 18th century, or interpreted in tune with modern times?

In celebration of our nation’s independence our guests include A.J. Jacobs, author of “The Year of Living Constitutionally”; UK law professors Paul Salamanca and Josh Douglas in a debate between interpreting the Constitution as it was written in the 18th century versus as a guideline intended to evolve with society and technologies; and, David Blankenhorn of the organization “Braver Angels” on the group’s efforts to host honest, civil discussions of public policy issues across today’s political divide.

Tom Martin hosts Eastern Standard, a weekly radio magazine of interviews and stories about interesting people, places, and things happening in the Commonwealth.
