Supreme Court: We’re Not Santa Claus

Plus: David’s unified theory of crime blind spots.

Sarah and David return for a truly prolific episode covering another SCOTUS decision day and revisit where they stand on originalism and its faults.

The Agenda:
—Doctrine coded vs. culture-war coded
Did the government coerce social media companies in 2020?
David, you ignorant slut
Interpreting “corruptly”
The accidental release of Idaho abortion case
—Is SCOTUS strategic in its opinion release schedule?
—The problems with originalism
—Trump immunity case delay
