On today’s podcast, David and Sarah respond to all the questions about Justice Stephen Breyer's retirement and replacement. Who are the leading candidates? Why is all the talk about Justice Kamala Harris or Justice Michelle Obama a bunch of rubbish? Do we expect any real change in the philosophical composition of the court? They wind up with a discussion of seditious conspiracy and all the reasons why it's tough to charge anyone with trying to overthrow the government.
