This week your hosts go to lengths to explain why the apparently esoteric cases argued this week are, in fact, much more interesting than they sound. Meanwhile, Texas is back at the Court fighting the feds, something Texas S.G. Judd Stone has a lot of experience doing. Zack discusses that oral argument and then interviews former Congressman, Senator, Governor, and Ambassador Sam Brownback. For trivia this week, GC relies on the always excellent work of Dr. Adam Feldman to quiz Zack about Justice Jackson's early oral argument performance.
