Podcast Mixtape: Radiolab Presents More Perfect

Originally Aired: Friday July 7, 2017

Would you give up your home if it could possibly benefit the greater good? What if the government needed to take your land to build a hospital; would you give in?

Should the government enjoy broad powers to take private property?

Radiolab and More Perfect host Jad Abumrad moderated a lively debate between Elie Mystal, legal editor at More Perfect, and Dana Berliner, litigation director at the Institute for Justice, which argued on behalf of homeowners in the U.S. Supreme Court case Kelo v. New London.
