We're back from the holiday break and so is SCOTUS! This week we discuss orders that the Court issued in a capital-punishment case and an abortion case. Zack and GianCarlo also discuss this week's oral arguments which, among other cases, involve a unique First Amendment issue with far-reaching implications.

GianCarlo interviews Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk, who explains the link between Robert Bork, Thomas Sowell, and Top Gun's Maverick. Lastly, GianCarlo tries to trick Zack with trivia about where many Supreme Court justices came from.
