S3E6: Presidential Ethics feat. Prof. Lawrence Lessig & Evelyn Willow
This week, we are joined by Lawrence Lessig, Harvard Law School professor and former presidential primary candidate in the 2016 election cycle. We are also joined by Brie's baby girl Evelyn, who you will surely hear. First, Prof. Lessig discusses his reasons for attending law school, and speaks to the unique freedoms of being an academic. We then chat about his decision to run for president and why he ultimately chose to withdraw his candidacy. Prof. Lessig gives us his take on ethics in the Trump administration, including pay-for-play and the current FBI investigation of Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen.
