Americans across the political spectrum have spent the last few months perched at the edge of their seats awaiting U.S. Supreme Court decisions sure to affect the presidential election and everyday life for millions. With the decisions now trickling in, citizens are looking to make sense of them. Even with newly appointed conservative justices, the court issued a number of rulings that defied expectations. In this episode, we take on three of the most wide-reaching decisions: Louisiana’s anti-abortion law, LGBTQ+ worker rights (skip to 13:05) and DACA (skip to 24:10).
