On today’s podcast, David and Sarah break down “Maskgate,” the claim that Justice Neil Gorsuch refused to show basic courtesy to Justice Sonia Sotomayor by refusing to wear a mask and find the claims wanting. They ask, “When a report seems to fall apart, what should a reporter do?” They also talk about how Sarah is setting Supreme Court precedents, wonder if a Satanist flag will soon fly over Boston, and discuss for just a few seconds Ted Cruz’s very, very boring case at the Supreme Court. They close, however, with a dash of English cultural history that you won’t want to miss.
