On today’s podcast, David and Sarah start with a discussion about Bill Cosby’s getting released from prison after his sentence was overturned by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court on due process grounds. Our hosts then turn to the two big final decisions from the Supreme Court on voting rights and anonymous donor disclosures, cases that divided the court along ideological lines. Sarah explores the ins and outs of Elena Kagan’s dissent in Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee, while David explains how Americans for Prosperity Foundation v. Bonta isn’t the conservative victory some news outlets have claimed. Finally, David and Sarah talk about a new big tech bill out of Florida that puts a lot of new requirements on big social media platforms (except those operated by certain state theme parks).
