Jamal Greene is straight up brilliant. Listen to him talk for two minutes and you’ll realize that. He’s also an author, a co-chair of Facebook’s Oversight Committee, an expert on constitutional law, a professor at Columbia School of Law, and the author of How Rights Went Wrong: Why Our Obsession with Rights Is Tearing America Apart.

Oh… and he’s the brother of Talib Kweli, our host.

The collision of all those elements makes for a riveting discussion. Not only because of Greene’s vast areas of expertise but also because the brothers use this time to reflect on how they were raised and how the factors that influenced them affected their widely-divergent lives in unique ways.

This episode is for anyone who wants to understand the limits and nuances of what “rights in America” are all about, plus anyone who wants to understand the dynamic between these two exceptional siblings better.
