In our fourth episode of tracking Judge Neil Gorsuch's nomination to the Supreme Court, we get into the greatest hits of his confirmation hearings. How do you pronounce his name? Does the "frozen trucker case" invoke the absurdity doctrine? Which Democrat Senator threw him a "softball" of a question?
Plus, we'll do some quick recaps of arguments and opinions, which may involve another inductee to the #BadLawyerGate Hall of Fame. And stick around after the music for a friendly discussion of amicus briefs (get it? friendly!).
