This past weekend I officially launched Heightened Scrutiny, a podcast about the Supreme Court's landmark civil rights cases. The very first episode explores the people and arguments that led to the important (and infamous) decision in Roe v. Wade.
I will be covering a wide array of important cases with this podcast, which I'm writing, recording, and editing all by myself. I hope to reach a very broad audience, helping everyone (not just lawyers or law students) understand more about how the Supreme Court approached its most famous cases and why it ruled the way that it did in each one.
Each episode will feature archival news reports on the major cases, as well as clips from the oral arguments themselves, in which the Supreme Court justices question the attorneys about the biggest social and legal issues of the day.
Hopefully, Heightened Scrutiny will be an entertaining way for listeners to become constitutional law experts (or maybe just fans) without having to go to law school. A cheaper way, if nothing else. I hope you check it out and enjoy it.
