We've reached the end of the term after a blockbuster month and an incredibly full week of orders and opinions. Your hosts wish farewell to Justice Breyer who is now officially retired and welcome Justice Ketanji Jackson.

This week the Court decided all of its remaining cases including West Virginia v. EPA, a challenge to a power grab by the Environmental Protection Agency, Biden v. Texas, a challenge to Biden's attempt to cancel the Remain-in-Mexico policy, and Kennedy v. Bremerton School district, which involved a school coach who was fired for praying privately after games. Your hosts discuss these and more.

Of course, no term could conclude without GianCarlo trying to stump Zack with trivia, and this week it's all about interesting statistics about this term.

See you after the summer hiatus!
