Episode 5 – Tangled: The Equal Protection Clause
Play • 1 hr 2 min

After the Civil War, what many Americans needed most was protection from violence. That’s what the Equal Protection Clause was meant to guarantee, but today the Clause does entirely different work. On this episode: a tour of the history and meaning of the Clause and how African-style hair braiders use it today to protect their right to earn an honest living.

The Dispatch
Punditry, Thy Name is Stirewalt
Today, we confirm that Dispatch contributing editor Chris Stirewalt has indeed surpassed our gold jacket threshold while engaging in the rankest of punditry. Chris and Jonah discuss how Biden’s “poison pills” (Neera Tanden’s potential confirmation, a dogmatic insistence on a $15 minimum wage policy, et al) are quickly becoming … well, pills, simply put. While the administration continues to add progressive boxes to their checklist, Israel continues to speed ahead with vaccinations and, in the domestic realm, the lingering shadow of Trump still presents obstacles for the GOP. As a bonus, this episode should hopefully make up for the lack of a Ruminant last weekend, as the vocal similarities between Chris and Jonah make the whole thing sound like a gigantic monologue.   Show Notes: -Chris’ page at The Dispatch -The WKRP in Cincinnati theme -The status of the U.S. vaccination rollout -Israel’s vaccination strategy -Fauci on normality and masking into 2022 -Jonah argued Biden should run a “return to normalcy” campaign before anyone else -Brad Pascale: Trump would have won with a different approach to COVID -Obama calling Bush “unpatriotic” for adding to the debt -“Out, out, brief candle!” -NYT: Biden should appoint a “reality czar” -Will Chamberlain: “Platform Access is a Civil Right” -Jonah’s college newspaper See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Short Circuit 163 | The Law of Johnny 5 Is Alive
For once living up to the 1980s-movie-sense of our name, we’re talking about robots. How should the law treat robots? What do we analogize to, the law of traditional machines? Animals? Something else? How should that law be “made,” by courts or by legislatures? And how does the Constitution interact with artificial intelligence? When a robot writes a novel is it “speech?” In a special Short Circuit, we look into all of these questions with our guest Ed Walters, founder and CEO of Fastcase, and an adjunct professor who teaches robot and artificial intelligence law at Georgetown Law School.
