Episode details

On today’s podcast, Sarah and David give their predictions on how the Supreme Court might rule next term in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the abortion case challenging a Mississippi law that prohibits most abortions after the 15th week of a woman’s pregnancy. Our hosts also chat about Texas’ new pro-life law, Justice Elena Kagan’s spicy dissent in Edwards v. Vannoy, the Mississippi Supreme Court case they talked about earlier this week, the University of North Carolina board of directors’ decision to block tenure for Nikole Hannah-Jones, and mugshots. Plus, they provide some listener wine pairing recommendations for lead fact-checker Alec Dent’s forthcoming cicada eating experience.
