Serafine featured on Newseum Institute Podcast

Mary Lou Serafine provided a primer on Serafine v Branaman, occupational licensing, and First Amendment issues to the First Five podcast series produced by the Washington, D.C. Newseum Institute. From their website:

In this episode of The First Five, lawyer and psychologist Mary Louise Serafine discusses her fight against Texas state laws that forbade her from identifying herself as a psychologist because she didn’t have a Texas license…. Mary Lou herself takes issue with the concept of putting speech into different categories, and discusses how difficult it can be to determine whether something is “professional speech”–especially a profession like psychology, where there’s no universal definition of what the practice is (by some standards, running a Weight Watchers meeting or writing an advice column could qualify as “practicing psychology”).
