For law nerds, this past week is your Super Bowl and we’ve got all the expert analysis fit to hear. Professors John Yoo (live from his posh squash club) and Richard Epstein (ably coached by Troy Senik) parse and analyze the two major decisions handed down this week, voting rights and the mother of all rulings — DOMA. Is it Roe v. Wade all over again? Also, the curious case of Edward Snowden and what should be done about him. 

It’s the law: every one can benefit from Epstein and Yoo’s legal advice by subscribing to this podcast here.

Apologies, EJHill is on vacation this week, and our Photoshop skills stink.

    I have to disagree with John that the DOMA decision is not like Roe.  It’s basically slow-mo Roe.  I appreciate, however, that both men expressed, in spite of their own support for redefining marriage, dismay at the two execrable opinions.  How is it possible to respect a court that issues opinions like these?  Does the court not understand that respect for law is a fragile thing?  Apparently they don’t.

    Was a construction sight not available for Mr. Yoo’s broadcast?

    I really enjoy this podcast.  I don’t understand it but I really enjoy it.  Please listen to your customer …. thats me.

    EXCELLENT AUDIO IS THE ONLY THING!  Because if you can’t hear the content what is the point?

    Recording Mr. Yoo (who I really want to hear and understand) in loud environment is an un forced error. 

    Why is Ricochet so TONE DEAF about audio?

    This Podcasts content is excellent.  Thanks for continuing it.

    The best line, “I disagree with John, but I’m not sure who is right.”

  4. Albert Arthur

    I’ll do the photoshop.

    The hairdos fit the boys perfectly.  Troy, that is the picture for your E-Harmony profile.

    Hey, did my photoshopped image get deleted? I didn’t think it was THAT bad!;-)

    No, there is something going on with images on the site. Investigating….

  9. I agree 100%. But where John does the podcast from is not under my control.

    Because what most women are looking for is a developmentally disabled Dorothy Hamill.

    For what it’s worth, I’m not at all bothered by John Yoo doing the podcast from Starbucks or from a tony racquetball club. I’m just surprised he hasn’t done one from Micky D’s, yet!

    I had no trouble hearing and understanding him, even with the background noise. I listened to the podcast using ear buds. Maybe that helped?

  12. Boymoose

    Understand Blue ….. Im not shooting at you.  Thanks for your work.
