Episode Notes

Dahlia Lithwick and Slate’s Mark Joseph Stern offer analysis of the big decisions due any minute from the Supreme Court, and Dahlia hosts a conversation with Rep. Katie Porter about the need for laws to shore up toppled norms.

In our Slate Plus segment, Mark returns to discuss the Stanford law student targeted by the Federalist Society. Nicholas Wallace nearly missed out on getting his diploma after fellow law students and the university mistook satire for defamation.  Also Mark and Dahlia are getting “free speech for me but not for thee” tattoos.

Podcast production by Sara Burningham.
