    What's the Deal with Admin Law?

    This week's episode covers two administrative law decisions that were not covered in previous podcast episodes, including Selia Law v. CFPB (separation of powers concerns cut the head, but not the body of the Consumer Financial Protection Board), and Little Sisters of the Poor v. PA (Presidential interpretation of ACA which limits contraceptives doesn't violate the law).  Law starts in earnest at (04:40), but goes on a long salad dressing tangent from (08:38-16-:18).

    Vuoi la Moglie Ubriace e la Botte Piena

    This week's episode covers the case of Our Lady of Guadalupe School v. Morrisey-Berru, which immunizes church schools from employment discrimination claims under the First Amendment, and also the Nevada COVID law that limits church attendance.  The sound is lightly wonky in the beginning, but it doesn't continue throughout the episode.  Otherwise, the law starts at (05:34).

    God One, Montana Zero

    God One, Montana Zero

    Today's unnervingly straight-laced episode covers the unnervingly chaotic decision in Espinoza v. Montana Dept of Revenue, wherein the Court takes turns yelling at each other about the Free Exercise Clause, the Establishment Clause, and Montana's apparently oppressive effort to help kids go to school.  Law starts from the beginning.

Archaeologist down under ,

We WANT to hear about your kid at the aquarium!

Also, I just really appreciate the way you pick apart the logic of a ruling, a law or an argument; getting into the weeds like that is really informative. I also love the love you have for each other, which is an important part of the great dynamic you bring to your listeners week after week. You guys are super-easy, informative listening. Thanks.
