Unprecedented tells the raw and emotional stories of ordinary people who helped define the limits of our First Amendment right to free speech. In each episode, you’ll meet the accidental guardians of perhaps our most cherished liberty. They are war protesters and religious zealots, Ku Klux Klan members and internet trolls. They are Americans who, regardless of their social or political views — or even an awareness of the stakes — have helped us fill in the Constitutional gaps that our Founding Fathers left open to interpretation.

Hosted by Booksmart Studios executive producers Matthew Schwartz and Michael Vuolo, with special appearances by NPR’s Nina Totenberg, Unprecedented will show us how we got here so we can better understand where we’re going. You’ll never think of the Constitution the same way again.
