In this episode, Craig Budner interviews L. Song Richardson, the Dean and Chancellor’s Professor of Law at the University of California, Irvine School of Law, with joint appointments in the Department of Criminology, Law and Society and in the Department of Asian American Studies.

Growing up with her father, an African-American and a lieutenant colonel in the Army, and her mother, a Korean immigrant, she was an accomplished pianist who chose Harvard over Juilliard.
