On this episode Heidi talks to Mark Tushnet, William Nelson Cromwell Professor of Law at Harvard Law School. In the interview, Professor Tushnet talks about the role of critical legal studies in political activism and the need for those seeking progressive goals to develop a double consciousness as part of their practice. In the second half Heidi talks to producer and New American Husband David Slavick about the recent Elsa (from Frozen) arrest controversy. We ask the question “Can cops ever be funny?” and break down the deep dark underbelly of Elsa fantasies. **Show Notes** *Part 1* Professor Mark Tushnet Faculty Page – Harvard Law School https://hls.harvard.edu/faculty/directory/10906/Tushnet Mark Tushnet, The Critique of Rights, 47 SMU L.
