Hot on the heels of the Kennedy retirement announcement, we’ve got our special Supreme Court finale episode! This is the show for you if you would enjoy detailed and amicable debate and discussion concerning:

  • The consequences of Kennedy’s retirement for national security and other issues;
  • What the ideological range might be for the next nominee;
  • The Carpenter decision, its nuances, and its implications for foreign intelligence investigations; and
  • The Travel Ban decision, the nature and justifications for “national security deference” in that case, how Kennedy may have pulled Roberts into hot water, and especially the Roberts-Sotomayor dispute over the relevance of Korematsu.

Or, you could skip to the end for a review of Solo: A Star Wars Story.
