My dream podcast!

I’ve know the oral arguments of the Supreme Court are available online for years, but without the historical backdrop, it’s difficult to make sense of them. I’ve always dreamed someone would make a podcast putting these arguments in context, and here it is! This podcast is a delight, and a necessary listen for younger women like myself, who cannot fathom the legal discrimination that was standard at the time.

A must listen, invaluable education for All

Thank you for this podcast. Though a scientist and not a lawyer, I am thoroughly enjoying learning how the amazing RBG navigated a hostile environment for the benefit of all society and especially women. So clear and easy yo understand even if this is not your area of study.
Definitely a must listen to All, especially on these times.
I am SO sad you decided to end this, please reconsider and talk about now the cases she participated as a judge and then justice!... I have learned so much, I honestly will miss this tremendously!

Fascinating history project

I have learned so much about RBG and her influence on the Court prior to her joining as a Justice. I love listening to the back and forth between Ginsburg and the justices during oral arguments and enjoy the way the narrator tells these stories in an accessible way
