Law and Disorder is a weekly, independent civil liberties radio program . It provides timely legal perspectives on issues concerning civil liberties, privacy, right to dissent and practices of torture exercised by the US government and private corporations. Our guests are leading authorities in their fields from around the country, and sometimes internationally. They include authors, lawyers, activists, scholars, and advocates focusing on such areas as free speech, the environment, prisoners’ rights, workers’ rights, trends in privatization, and government and corporate accountability. Co-hosts Heidi Boghosian and Michael Steven Smith are New York based attorneys and writers. They host the show with Michael Ratner. Each show features two or three interview segments with brief introductory host exchanges or editorials on current affairs. Each segment ends with a way that listeners can learn more about, or even get involved in, the issue at hand.
