This week on Uncommon Knowledge, Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia visits for a wide-ranging interview on subjects including the living Constitution, Roe v. Wade, Congress’s relationship to the Court, and his new book, Reading Law: The Interpretation of Legal Texts. “I think it took the American people a while to figure out what was going on, maybe 30 years.
