Law Talk: The Life Of The Snail Darter

interview with Richard A. Epstein, John Yoo, Troy Senik
Monday, April 25, 2022

The faculty lounge has been closed for repairs, and after a long absence the men of Law Talk are back with a super-sized episode. On the agenda: the rise of KBJ and the legacy of Justice Breyer; the fallout from the end of the mask mandate; the January 6 Commission’s new effort to hem in executive power; Florida tries to undo Disney World’s legal privileges; Justice Gorsuch sounds a controversial note over the treatment of American territories; and should the government give legal personhood to … bodies of water? All that plus Yoo becomes a rock star, Epstein fends off troublesome tuba players, and Senik’s got an innovative new proposal about American statehood.
