Overconfidence Is Killing The Supreme Court
Play • 39 min

On today’s episode of Hear Me Out… supreme hubris.

The Supreme Court is currently unpopular to a historic degree. That popularity is, of course, contingent on political opinion – and whether the court has bucked it recently. But most people agree that something’s wrong with the Supreme Court as an institution.

And, according to Aaron Tang, it’s not partisanship… even though that’s a popular scapegoat. It’s overconfidence and egos running wild.

Professor and author Aaron Tang joins us to discuss what’s wrong with SCOTUS, and how we might start to fix it.
