Yale's Constitution - Special Episode - Guest Nicholas Christakis
In this “additional” episode, Andy and Akhil switch roles and put the US Constitution aside for an hour, as they take a deep dive into the governance and politics of their beloved alma mater. Yale recently initiated a scandal when their trustees abruptly eliminated most of the democratic elements whereby alumni participated in the governance of the University. Andy was a candidate for election to the Yale Corporation, and he leads us through the weeds “inside Yale.” Meanwhile, Nicholas Christakis, a Sterling Professor at Yale and an official of Yale’s Faculty Senate, joins us; he and Akhil offer a unique faculty-oriented perspective on events. Anyone who cares about Yale will want to learn the facts behind this outrage. And how does John Adams, a Harvard man, sneak his way in?
