Episode #37: Supreme Court Wrap-Up 2018

This month, we welcome back friend-of-the-show Ann Duncan to talk about the 2017-18 Supreme Court season, including Masterpiece Cake Shop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, NIFLA v. Becerra, and Trump v. Hawaii. She helps us understand why this was such a good year for conservatives in terms of the Court’s religion cases, and scopes out what soon-to-be Justice Kavanaugh portends for the terms to come. And in One Last Thing, Dan has been spending his summer at the movie house, while Tim has been catching up on Chinese science fiction.

Some of the things we discuss in this episode:

Ann mentioned Moral Combat by Marie Griffith and this article by Winnifred Sullivan.

Here’s a case summary of Korematsu v. US, which many (including the dissenting justices) compared to the ruling in Trump v. Hawaii.

Dan’s OLT was about Deadpool 2 (trailer NSFW) and The Incredibles 2.

And Tim’s OLT was about The Three Body Problem by Liu Cixin.
