A New Way to View the Supreme Court

Open in playerListen on);
Advisory Opinions is a new podcast from The Dispatch. Hosts David French and Sarah Isgur have a weekly conversation about the law, culture, and why it matters.
Episode details

In today’s podcast, David and Sarah talk about the recent Supreme Court term and how Trump’s justices have changed the ideological makeup of the court. After some SCOTUSBlog stats analysis, Sarah explains how she would categorize the Supreme Court’s jurisprudence this year, and why a lot of commentators are leaving out part of the story when they discuss the justices’ ideological leanings. Plus, a dive into an anti-critical race theory lawsuit out of Evanston, Illinois, where elementary school students have been getting simplistic and controversial “anti-whiteness” training.
