This week the news may be focused on the election, but the Supreme Court is carrying on with business as usual. Your hosts discuss oral arguments, focusing on Fulton v. Philadelphia, the Catholic adoption services case, and Jones v. Mississippi, the Eighth Amendment challenge to life sentences without parole for minors. Amy interviews Laura Wolk who is the first blind Supreme Court clerk, and GianCarlo pulls out all the stops with election-law trivia. Will Amy leave any hanging chads? Join us and find out!
