The Citizen's Guide to the Supreme Court

Brett and Nazim are two attorneys who hate being attorneys. In lieu of practicing law, they have instead developed a podcast to help make the Supreme Court more accessible to the average person. Each week, Brett and Nazim will discuss current Supreme Court cases and how they affect your daily life, while also ruminating on how their dreams of fame and fortune resulted in jokes about Star Wars and wondering how Ruth Bader Ginsburg thinks about Facebook. This Podcast is for entertainment purposes only and is not legal advice. If anything you hear leads you to believe you need legal advice, please contact an attorney immediately.

Dec 27, 2020

Gather round, children, to hear the story of RFRA-MAS, as told by Brett and Nazim to a live google-hangout crowd.  RFRA Claus and Burwell the Elf discuss the history of RFRA, it's current application in the case of Tanzin v. Tanzir, and then take audience questions.  The podcast is taking a holiday break, but will return on January 24th, 2021.  Merry RFRA-MAS to all and to all a good night.

Dec 20, 2020

This week's episode covers last week's news stories involving the Supreme Court, including the election, COVID-19, the death penalty, and the census.  The law starts at (08:49), but you'd miss your invitation to the Citizen's Guide to the Supreme Court Holiday Party. 

EDIT: a correction on what Nazim said about the impact of masks can be found here.

Dec 13, 2020

This week's episode discusses Texas v. Pennsylvania and Kelly v. Pennsylvania, the two recent failed attempts to reverse the election through the Supreme Court.  The podcast welcomes a Supreme Court expert to help analyze the heart of this issue, and then Brett and Nazim discuss Roman Catholic Diocese v. Cuomo.  Law starts basically from the beginning.

Dec 6, 2020

This week's case covers Fulton v. City of Philadelphia, which asks whether a Philadelphia law banning discrimination in the process of fostering children violates the First Amendment rights of a Catholic agency.  The law starts at (07:20), but you'd miss a real brain buster from Nazim.
