…in that there needs to be more of it.

I love Dan’s refreshing cynicism and Will’s incorrigible cheerfulness.

Will sounds like he’s recording from the bottom of a well.
Jwalta via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/19/22
As a non lawyer, I’ve listened to a bunch of SCOTUS podcasts and this has to be my favorite. This is by far the most detailed and scholarly. Neither host is ideologically driven (or at least disclose when they are about a particular issue) and it’s refreshing to hear them argue cases on their...Read full review »
Sam.D. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/17/22
This is my first time listening to this show and I might have to stop after about 10 minutes. One guy’s mic is perfect with crisp audio. The other guy sounds like he’s in a hole and he mumbles and trails off on every sentence. He’s not even speaking human language. He sounds more like a punctured...Read full review »

Still sorting out Dan from Will. But Will (I think) records from his office on speaker phone, or at least that is the audio result. Maybe this is a plot by Dan to undermine Will’s arguments by making him unintelligibly audible, or audibly unintelligible. To conclude: Let’s go out and buy him...Read full review »
paris here we come via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/02/22
Listened to quite a few different scotus podcasts and I think this one tends to do the best job of going into the technical analysis related to a case. The hosts don’t quite agree on everything but I think tend to be respectful to the different trains of thought. I will say it’s not as...Read full review »
All_The_Goats_007 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/14/22
I like that the two hosts have voices with similar timbres.

You’re both wrong
R Proto via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/03/22
If you only listen to one SCOTUS podcast, make it this one. Dan and Will offer great insights and do a good job of teasing out the best possible arguments for each side of an issue. Fair and even-handed, though I will say Will does a better job of persuading me of the merits of originalism than...Read full review »
skiingisbelieving22 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/02/22
Dan Epps and Will Baude’s discussions of Supreme Court decisions are intelligent and good-natured. While they often - almost always, in fact - disagree, they are never disagreeable. It seems obvious that they genuinely like and respect each other, despite having opposing views on most cases. I...Read full review »
Knocka91 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/02/22
I enjoy the podcast, and look forward to each episode. I agree with others that Dan is snarky to Will, but Will takes the shots in stride. Only complaint is Will’s sound quality - sound like he is talking in a tin can. Thanks for podcasting!
The Ultimate Reviewers via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/01/22
Dan has certainly gotten pricklier as the conservative victories have racked up (the “cottage industry” line, as someone else pointed out, seemed a bit mean-spirited)but I still look forward to every podcast. It’s the best SCOTUS show out there for sure. And contra some other comment, the hosts...Read full review »
definitely not Goldfarb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/22
This podcast is simply the best. Insightful, thoughtful, and the hosts have great chemistry. I especially enjoy when they cover recent cases that are less well known. I look forward to every episode!
Cribbage31 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/22
Will and Dan are both smart, and there’s some really sharp analysis of the cases. However… “sharp” also describes Dan, who is bizarrely prickly in every exchange. The chemistry between the hosts is part of what makes a good podcast, and there’s very little here. Worth listening to if there’s a...Read full review »
LMALAW via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/21/22
Many of the other Supreme Court podcasts are one-sided perspectives. If you care about the substance of the matters, and don’t want to be simply propagandized to, this is the best I’ve found.
Empact via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/20/22
A really great SCOTUS podcast with two informed and even-handed hosts. Well worth a listen.
Greg651 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/19/22
Very interesting discussions that assist in the analysis of S Ct decisions. Obviously, it is very helpful to have read the opinion (and dissent(s)) before listening to these podcasts but, hey, the same was true in law school: you had to read the cases to appreciate the classroom discussion. One...Read full review »
Maroon 79 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/12/22
This is my absolute favorite podcast. Will & Dan never fail to educate and entertain me, whether they’re contemplating the big picture of a case or sifting through fiddly but crucial details. I appreciate the collegial back-and-forth they manage to maintain, especially when they disagree...Read full review »
Stasia77 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/11/22
Dan Epps has really gone off the deep end. In the episode “Settling of Scores,” he tries to explain some conspiracy theory that allows him (and others) to ascribe bad faith those who have ideas he does not like. It’s really something to behold and Will is so polite to not only poke a few holes...Read full review »
MLS11MLS via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/11/22
This podcast combines insightful analysis with lots of fun repartee. I enjoy every episode!
MSaw62 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/10/22
Professor Baude is clearly very smart. But I’ll eat my shorts if he isn’t the biggest intellectual Zamboni for the conservative legal movement I’ve ever heard—anything to give the decisions of the court a patina of non-partisan legitimacy that they don’t deserve. It makes me sick in my mouth
Robinschnobin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/10/22
Just found this and glad I did. Excellent occasional episodes about Supreme Court cases. While my practice doesn’t involve con law very often I really enjoy hearing the analysis.
TX IP lawyer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/04/22
At the hosts prodding to review for the algorithms to get the show more exposure I’m writing this review. It’s a good Supreme Court podcast with informed guys talking about the court, inside baseball style.
listener_20040813 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/02/22
Thank you both for just being normal. Just a normal logical show. The end is not nigh. Thank you, Me
Jeffrey DC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/26/22
Maybe my favorite legal podcast!
jaatlas via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/25/22
Some of the best insights on SCOTUS opinions from two keen court watchers. As an attorney who litigates constitutional issues, the podcast keeps me up to date on developments important to my practice. But it is more than a practice aid. It entertains as it teaches. Will and Dan have a great...Read full review »
Frustrated lawyer12345 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/21/22
Like to see a left leaning lawyer paired with a right leaning lawyer, both with time at the Supreme Court explaining what is happening at the court. I’m a non-lawyer and they break it down so even I can understand.
Zip lip via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/21/22
appropriately explanatory for maximizing insight and entertainment on current events
Mmf3298 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/21/22
This is my go podcast for learning about recent SCOTUS cases and understanding the significance of recent events. When the Dobbs opinion came out, I kept refreshing the feed to see what Will and Dan had to say about the leak and the merits of the opinion. Good healthy debate by two very smart...Read full review »
3rdCoastAbogado via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/20/22
I am happy to see Mr. Epps back on the Supreme Court beat. Mr. Baude seems like a great partner. I have missed Mr. Epp’s prior podcast. The world was poorer for it having ended regardless of the reason. First episode is great. Good insights into how the court works. With light, unbiased,...Read full review »
CrowCounsel via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/20/22
This is probably my favorite legal podcast. Will and Dan are both intellectually honest and forthcoming with their opinions. One suggestion: It would be cool if, during each episode, Will and Dan each recommended an article or book on a conlaw, admin law, fed courts, etc. topic.
PJSSSSSSS via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/20/22
Legal podcasts about the Supreme Court can be evaluated the same way news programs are (the quality depends on what gets covered, how much you trust the commentators, and the chemistry between the hosts). Will Baude and Dan Epps are really trustworthy commentators. They talk with humility, admit...Read full review »
VIKGarg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/10/22
Lawyers being lawyers, I've found it hard to find a podcast where the host just lays out reality honestly, and then adds on intelligent commentary. For some reason they think all topics boil down to a debate that they need to win instead of acknowledging reality is complex and...Read full review »
Kolbstar via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/06/22
My only complaint is that this isn’t a weekly podcast! It’s refreshing to hear Will and Dan discuss and debate legal ideas in a friendly way. Thanks guys!
Sskomo97 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/23/22
As a lawyer that obsessively follows SCOTUS and wishes every day I could make a living out of discussing the oral arguments and opinions, this podcast allows me to live through two incredible legal scholars that balance legal reasoning and humor to create a fantastic listen. If you are not a...Read full review »
Mb2036 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/21/22
Dan, good job trying to get Will to confront reality. Please keep doing this. Will is scary to listen to, because he’s at the top level of intellectual ability, yet he says things that are off base and only a small number of people would agree with. Will usually is not candid that he is...Read full review »
TrueP00P via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/22
Dan and Will are refreshingly frank and their conversations are largely free from hyperbole and strawmen. Rather than regurgitate the same take as others using different words, they present new ideas or at least new ways of looking at the same idea rooted in their somewhat idiosyncratic...Read full review »
WCAS '11 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/13/22
As a big fan of First Mondays before it fell apart and who has been searching for a replacement ever since, to me this podcast is its spiritual successor. It’s a factual discussion on the Court,their rulings and machinations in an approachable way with minimal political spin. The hosts are...Read full review »
H.Jones1988 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/25/22
Look forward to new episodes.
DimitriKDimitriK via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/30/21
The conversation flows nicely and both Epps and Baude offer thoughtful, nuanced takes. Never any cheap shots, never any theatrical outrage, and always generous to whatever the “other side” believes—you can’t find that in most legal podcasts these increasingly polarized days! As a recent law...Read full review »
Hobbes714 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/14/21
The best legal podcast dealing with the week to week issues before the Supreme Court. Essential listening. My only frustration is the long periods of time where the podcast feed goes dark.
byqikc9875 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/10/21
The hosts provide exceptional legal analysis that is easy to follow and understand.
mp8543 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/27/21
Dan and Will arguably provide the most thorough and thoughtful legal analysis of any podcast. It always brightens my day when a new episode appears.
Ozarkz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/08/21
I love this podcast. It’s a male version of Strict Scrutiny, which is a high compliment. They are smart, funny, and honest. They explain complicated issues well.
rmarksftc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/07/21
It’s like Fed Courts, on current events, without having to worry about an exam. Intellectually rigorous and fun discussion between Will and Dan.
cb3ik via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/04/21
The best podcast on the Supreme Court. Will and Dan are amazing hosts. While they have their opinions and perspectives, they do a great job explaining the arguments and assessing the merits of the arguments without being partisan or dogmatic. They are also delightful together; have a great...Read full review »
Davidwhitepdxor via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/08/21
I appreciate that Dan and Will share their differing perspectives in a highly respectful, thoughtful manner. This should be a model for intellectual discourse over controversial topics.
Andy7378338 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/04/21
Whether you’re a liberal or a conservative you should be listening to this show. Great breakdown of the law without spin, bias, or agenda.
aayvns via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/02/21
The content is generally good, but the sound needs some serious balancing. The hissing of the letter s, for example, makes for a very grating listening experience.
