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

Today on the podcast, our hosts walk us through a bit of Supreme Court drama involving Sonia Sotomayor and some historical revision of a 1987 Supreme Court immigration case.  They then dive into last week’s 94-page ruling from a federal judge striking down California’s assault weapons ban, a decision that includes references to COVID vaccines and the Swiss Army knife in its robust defense of gun rights in America.  Finally, David and Sarah discuss whether civic education can reduce negative partisanship in America.
