Justice, Interrupted The Experiment

    • Documentary

Last week, Justice Sonia Sotomayor announced that the Supreme Court had broken with tradition and changed its rules for oral argument. This came after a study revealed that women are disproportionately interrupted by men in the highest court in America. This week, we’re re-airing a More Perfect episode about the Northwestern University research that inspired the Court’s changes.

This story originally aired on More Perfect, a Radiolab spin-off about the Supreme Court.

A transcript of this episode is available.
