In this episode Amy and GianCarlo introduce Judge Amy Coney Barrett and cover all the most interesting and exciting parts of her confirmation hearing.

They also discuss two cases argued before the Court this week: Torres v. Madrid, and U.S. v. Briggs. GianCarlo interviews Ilya Shapiro about his new book, Supreme Disorder: Judicial Nominations and the Politics of America's Highest Court. And lastly, Amy does a pretty good job of stumping GianCarlo with court-packing trivia!
