(Episode 9) Article III and The Judiciary Spooktacular

Happy (Almost) Halloween, Listeners! In episode 9, we discuss Article III of the Constitution, which is devoted to the "judicial Power" and the Supreme Court ("SCOTUS"). SCOTUS is near and dear to our hearts, and what better time to discuss the 9 justices than in episode 9? (Wooo, spooky. Okay, fine - it's not that spooky. Whatever. We're having fun.)

The Founders considered the judiciary to be the "least dangerous" of the three branches. Is that still true today? In episode 9, Amanda and Sam tackle the setup and powers of the judicial branch, discuss the judiciary's proper role in our modern government, and give you some fun facts about the very first Court as well as the current Justices sitting on the Court.

Marbury v. Madison, 5 U.S. 137 (1803)
