Christopher Phillips, author of "Constitution Café: Jefferson's Brew for a True Revolution"

Host Cecil Prescod interviews Christopher Phillips, author of "Constitution Café: Jefferson's Brew for a True Revolution."

Call in to discuss whether you think the Constitution should be revised every twenty years.

A radical in his own day, Thomas Jefferson believed that the Constitution should be revised periodically to keep up with the changing times. Instead, it has become a sacred, immutable text-and in Phillips's opinion, it's in need of some shaking up.

For his book Phillips gathered together Americans from all walks of life, moderating dialogues inspired by Jefferson's own populist political philosophy, formulating new Constitutional articles.

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
