    The Annual Thanksgiving Mailbag Episode

    Happy Thanksgiving, folks.  This year's mailbag covers topics such as a Supreme Court code of ethics, the leaked Dobbs opinion, strict scrutiny on religious laws, and senate confirmation hearings, BUT ALSO covers a professional wrestling match called WARGAMES, football, and whether cheesecake is a pie.  It's all very on-brand and there's no time stamp because its Thanksgiving.  The podcast will return next Sunday (12/4).

    How Many Judges Does It Take to Define a Wetland?

    If you love that age-old classic, you're going to love this week's episode covering Sackett v. EPA, which asks the Court to revisit the EPA's definition of "a wetland", after they were unable to come to a consensus sixteen years ago.  Brett and Nazim also discuss our upcoming Thanksgiving mailbag episode and the chances of Nazim eating himself to death next week.  The answer will not surprise you.  Law starts at a robust (10:15).

    Room Temperature News from Room Temperature Dudes

    War(hol) Profiteers

    This week's episode serves as the spiritual successor to Thursday's episode on intellectual property, as Brett and Nazim discuss Andy Warhol Foundation for the Arts v. Goldsmith, which asks whether Warhol's depictions of a photograph are protected by the doctrine of fair use from the photographer and copyright holder of the original picture.  The law starts from the beginning.

    The Citizen's Guide to Intellectual Property

    Brett and Nazim continue a series of shorter episodes on fundamental legal topics.  This episode covers intellectual property, including what is protected, how it is protected, and why we sometimes let that protection lapse in the interests of good and evil.

    The Hogs of Federalism

    The Hogs of Federalism

    This week's episode is a real SCOTUS ghost story for Nazim, as the podcast covers National Pork Producers Council v. Ross, which asks whether a California law which affects pork farms in other States violates the Dormant Commerce Clause.  Law starts at (03:13), but this is a generally silly episode from start to finish.

These guys are great

Randomly stumbled upon these guys and this is a surprisingly easy and fun listen. I have no law background and still love their law banter, and the non sequiturs, “NFL quarterbacks look like giant babies with diapers on.”

Disappointing

Tried to find a nonpartisan podcast on the constitution. All was well for 6 months until the latest episode which accuses Republican senators of questioning the recent Supreme Court appointee to specifically gain favorability with the Q anon crowd (with 0 evidence). Had a fan of the show. Just lost one. Disappointing.
