    The trivia questions were particularly great this podcast. Well done Amy! The interview with the professors was interesting but too everything through the light of feminism and women struggling, etc. Yes maybe – so far – there have only been 4% women on the Supreme Court but what percentage of people in the US have been on the Supreme Court? 0.0000?  What percentage of women are sitting on courts now? I would just like a more positive view than they presented.
