The Stanford Squeeze

Reaching "terminal stupidity."

By now you’ve probably heard about Judge Duncan’s bad day at Stanford Law School. No worries if not, because this Marvel-length special episode will leave no question unanswered. To complete the autopsy, Sarah and David are joined by Original Jurisdiction’s David Lat and the man of the dark hour himself, Fifth Circuit Judge Kyle Duncan. They discuss the Stanford standoff and the ongoing trend of student disruptions, the response from Stanford administrators, whether shouting down speakers is a form of speech, how the judge responded to the students and whether he thinks federal judges should boycott the school, and more. Prepare yourself for a two-hour marathon that will leave you wondering, was the juice worth the squeeze?
