The National Security Law Podcast (aka the NSL Podcast) is a weekly review of the latest legal controversies associated with the U.S. government’s national security activities and institutions, featuring Professors Bobby Chesney and Steve Vladeck of the University of Texas at Austin. They bring different perspectives to these issues, but always in a friendly spirit. The program is fast-paced but detail-rich, and is meant for lawyers and non-lawyers alike. If you’ve been looking for a thoughtful yet enjoyable way to keep up with and better understand these issues, the National Security Law Podcast is the show for you.

Customer Reviews

Very Good Episode

This is one of the best episodes. Really strong discussion on citizenship, among other topics this week. Steve did interrupt less than normal, which helps. I also really like the flag which allows me to skip the stuff at the end. Other than one of their "Deep Dives", this episode is at/near the top. In that vein, I would ask Bobby and Steve to consider a regularly scheduled "Deep Dive", monthly or quarterly or whatever, because the more structured model of that type of episode results in a better flow, less interruption and a stronger overall narrative and logical construct. Keep it up.

Great podcast, one host little difficult to understand

Fantastic discussion. Both hosts are knowledgeable. I find one host a tiny bit hard to understand sometimes (he tends to speak incomprehensibly quickly and interrupt the other host).

Legal implications discussed deeply and understandably to a non-lawyer

I love the National Security Law podcast! As a non-lawyer, I appreciate that Bobby and Steve define terms and provide background — and yet still get into meaningful analysis and implications of national security law happenings. I also love their banter, their respectful disagreements, and of course the sometimes ridiculous frivolity. Highly recommend!
