5-4 podcast

my sister got me hooked on the 5-4 podcast, staring three funny legal friends telling us why the supreme court sucks. their basic premise is that we should stop kidding ourselves about having this objective, principled, logical body of a judicial branch weighing in on our laws. The supreme court is political, hypocritical, and totally inconsistent. But the commentary on each case is hilarious and I highly recommend it.

They bring up horrible visions of the future. Republicans will keep eroding civil rights for war on terror because it "saves lives", despite the fact that no terrorist organization can EVER touch the death toll of the US healthcare system. Amy Coney Barrett has gone from handmaid to supreme court justice. Trump will refuse to leave the White House and we'll have to keep him in the basement forever and feed him worms like the Babadook. But as they say... the worse the country gets, the better the podcast!
