The dweebs on the supreme court are total buttholes but the ones on this podcast are great

As someone who grew up with the extreme right, I’m constantly screaming into the void when liberals talk about politics because they’re playing a completely different game assuming the right is playing in good faith. This is one of the few podcasts that understands the structures of American...Read full review »

Listening to this podcast on my lunch break in my car after getting accosted by zionists at my job is literally like having access to an oxygen tank. Truly love you guys

I’ve been listening to this podcast for the last year or two and it’s so refreshing. I am not a lawyer, or law student. I don’t even know that much about the judicial system. But listening to these conversations has made me smarter. These are the conversations that I crave about progressive...Read full review »

I’m neither a law student nor a legal professional - nor am I American! - but I’m finding your analysis entertaining and also helpful in understanding the specific crazy intersection of US law and politics. No judging (haha), we Brits certainly have our own deep-seated political issues; yours are...Read full review »
Tricolour Sage via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/05/24
Hosts don’t even try to consider other opinions/arguments, so the podcast is filled with boring & rigid “takes” with NO nuance. Also, I’m a liberal democrat, but I couldn’t stand the hosts’ smugness and “holier than thou” attitudes. For a better SCOTUS podcast, check out strict scrutiny -...Read full review »

Incredibly cruel for how weak they are

also, followed Peter here from If Books Could Kill and so glad I did.

5-4 is a perfect mix of insight, intelligence, thoughtfulness, humor, skepticism, and being right.
Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnaaaaaa via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/24/24
I have zero background in law and quite frankly have never found it particularly interesting. Naturally, the Supreme Court rulings impact our lives, and I see the headlines. I’ve never delved behind the curtain on how the sausage is made, though we all saw that brought front and center with the...Read full review »

Absolutely my favorite podcast ever. Well produced, intelligent without being soulless. Unapologetic and real. I’m probably a bit more moderate that the hosts, but I deeply respect their perspective and it has definitely swayed me on some topics. Peter, if you ever read this… I swear to god, we...Read full review »

Thanks for talking about this. I appreciate your voices of reason - and of snark.
Truth_is_hope via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/02/24
I love a bit of dark humor, and you can’t get better than these three lawyers pulling back the robes on one of the most corrupt yet revered institutions in America, exposing how SCOTUS has quietly yet proudly shaped US law and politics—mostly to our detriment.
A. Suiter Clarke via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/27/24
35 days to 4/25/24… 46 cases in Trump v. US. Can you do it? Challenge accepted?? I truly love your podcast. I’m a regular person with regular degrees and all I want to do is become a lawyer thanks to people like the 3 of you. Thanks for what you do. It’s important work. Michelle...Read full review »
MKM0228 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/20/24
Much of the legal system is completely distanced from the general public and when exposed, they generally lack the tools or knowledge to understand it. This pod highlights Supreme Court issues & cases, breaking it down in an understandable way (and in a hilarious way). Untangling these cases...Read full review »
Janet?Marty?WhoAreYouPeople!? via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/15/24
If you identify as progressive, are frustrated by the early 2020s era Supreme Court, and want your priors affirmed with enough detail to pass scrutiny at a dinner party, this is your pod. A greater depth of detail as to this podcast’s failings, while warranted, will not be provided by me....Read full review »

I crave this podcast. It is so good. I learn so much. Happy I found it long after it’s inception so I have 200+ to listen to. Thanks, weirdos. Also lol to having any bad reviews. That means you’re planting seeds in the minds of people who disagree with you. Well played.
jennaclementines via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/09/24
Smart, compelling, empathetic, wry, and truthful. Free Palestine.
sullivan_etc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/09/24
One of the 1 star reviews said something about “these guys support the trans weirdos”, and I think that perfectly incapsulates the type of people that wouldn’t like this show. I would support this podcast if it was just @the_law_boy twitter, but it comes with a free education on the inadequacies...Read full review »
Obaolegend via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/24
Decent info in this, but they’re clearly getting more desperate for cash, doing a 4 part series and locking eps 2 and 4 behind a paywall is the last insult I’m willing to deal with. Just demonstrates how uninterested this podcast is in disseminating information and how focused they are on...Read full review »
Ilinnodimorte via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/24
As much as I’ve enjoyed learning the history of some of our highest court’s worst decisions, the new mini series has piqued my interest even more. It’s important for people to understand the sources and methods for how extremely fringe legal concepts get laundered through the courts.

Keep fighting the good fight
Ra63859112 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/21/24
I just started listening from the beginning and while this show is amazing, it’s like a horrific recap of the last four years. Oh poor friends, you don’t know yet. But you kind of do, bc you’re weirdly prescient. Keep it up.
stovie26 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/24
Shocking they would platform Ryna Workman who was not fired for “expressing solidarity with Palestine”…but was fired for their inhumane and virulently antisemitic remarks immediately after Oct 7. I am so sad that this podcast took an awful turn into hate speech. Embarrassment to the legal community.
brookeorb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/15/24
You guys actually support those trans weirdos. You must be into some weird stuff. 🤣🤣🤣
Theshotgunraider via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/10/24
I love this podcast more than I can say. It is informative and hilarious and really helps me keep my sanity - it is my go-to after having an unpleasant interaction with a right wing bigot. The one star ratings of this show are just hollow attacks by angry conservatives with nothing better to do.
Mr. Jim Business via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/05/24
Great job having the terrorist sympathizers on the show, guys. Libs want to cancel conservatives for free speech, yet when liberals give aid to killers like Hamas, it’s oh so terrible injustice. Adolescent brained liberal kids.
Zedhead009 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/03/24
Listen to the dec 21st pod. All of a sudden the “free speech has consequences!” crowd is upset a bunch of disgusting Ivy League students had some job offers rescinded. You created these rules, now you get to live by them. Get bent.
AZDuke06 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/28/23
Shocking that a show by purported legal experts would include so many bad faith arguments. If you can’t support your ideological stance with facts and logic then you ought to re-examine your ideology but the hosts of this show instead choose repeatedly to engage in every form of intellectual...Read full review »

sokobanz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/25/23
I’ve shared Biden v. Nebraska with dozens of people. It perfectly encapsulates the premise of the podcast (conservative capture of the courts) and does so in a humorous yet galvanizing manner. Keep fighting the good fight!
Azomonas via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/24/23
I love 5-4! So much historical context, important framing, research, and insight while being funny as heck. Thank you, Peter, Rhiannon, and Michael!
13Fangs via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/23/23
Are the makers of this show really OK with Jews being raped and murdered?
Textdgh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/22/23
which has defended Hamas Oct 7 terror attacks as “acts of Palestinian resistance” and a “struggle for self-determination and freedom”. Morally abhorrent and hateful.
NoShelfControl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/17/23
Thoughtful and engaging
Jkadaman via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/06/23
The content is great. However, the addition of ‘right’ after every sentence is initially distracting, then maddening and finally the only thing I heard. It is so pervasive that that I began listening for the patterns and ways it was served up. From the speaker-based utterance of the...Read full review »
The root boy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/23
Seeing people leave 1 star reviews and unsubscribe for the Pro-Palestine content— GOOD RIDDANCE! This podcast encourages critical thinking about an institution we’re taught is impartial. Those same critical thinking skills should be applied to U.S. & Israeli propaganda. Anyone who’s...Read full review »

Really appreciated Rhiannon’s thoughtful and informative insights into the movement for Palestinian freedom.
neillyrose via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/17/23
Loved the pod but you lost me with Schenk. NO, I’m not AT ALL supportive of Israel’s actions in GAZA. But to be “meh” about an organization celebrating an ethnic murder/kidnapping spree? I’m out.
JFC I don't want a nickname via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/14/23
This entire podcast is just a bunch of dweebs coping that the constitution, and the American people do not uphold their own personal values.
magicmangold via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/14/23
Was a big fan of the show before one of the hosts decided to take over and impose antisemitic narrative and Hamas propaganda. Being a Palestinian does not give you a right to trash the victims with lies and manipulate the facts in support of a terrorist organisation under the disguise of “Free...Read full review »
Мария М & Я via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/14/23
I love what this podcast is about and the interesting insights it shares regarding the Supreme Court. What I don’t love is the personal and one sided, anti-Israel rhetoric. I have been feeling this way for a long time, but having just listened to the introduction of the October 17 2023 episode,...Read full review »

My brother suggested this show to me a few months ago and I’ve binged it. Love the hosts. They do a great job.
Wrong via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/12/23
As a long time listener, I was really disappointed that the show has taken such an anti-Israel turn. The last few podcasts have had a host railing against Israel with no mention of Hamas’ terrorist actions. I’ve canceled my membership and will no longer listen.
MaeCoco2023 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/10/23
I love to the bash the current Supreme Court as much as anyone, but this podcast has allowed itself to be hijacked to proposed anti-Israel and anti-Semitic propaganda. It’s Today’s episode regarding a cease fire did not even mention Hamas’s murder of 1,400 Jews (and non-Jews) and the kidnapping...Read full review »
