Artwork for 5-4


Prologue Projects
GovernmentNews CommentaryNews

5-4 is a podcast about how much the Supreme Court sucks. It's a progressive and occasionally profane take on the ideological battles at the heart of the Court's most important landmark cases; an irreverent tour of all the ways in which the law is shaped by politics. Listen each week as hosts Peter, Michael, and Rhiannon dismantle the Justices’ legal reasoning on hot-button issues like affirmative action, gun rights, and campaign finance, and use dark humor to reveal the high court's biases. Presented by Slow Burn co-creator Leon Neyfakh, 5-4 is a production of Prologue Projects. See for privacy and opt-out information.

    This is my first review of any podcast EVER, I listen to this on my way to work and back, as a recent graduate applying to grad school this podcast is amazing and informative but more than that I feel like I am listening to a bunch of friends which means a lot to me.
