In today's episode, Joel and Chris discuss the March Madness that is the Senate confirmation hearings. (Don't fret, they talk NCAA March Madness too.) First, they give an update on Brittney Griner's detainment in Russia. Then, they get into the latest from the Supreme Court, including the defense of a law with questionable constitutionality. Next, they dig into the confirmation proceedings of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. They talk identity politics and the way the senators have abused the platform of these hearings. They also give a brief overview of confirmation hearings and their purpose and effectiveness (or lack thereof).
In Courtroom Quarterback (beginning 38:00), Joel and Chris talk basketball and March Madness. They also talk about the Kansas City Chiefs' trade of Tyreek Hill. They talk about how the recent trades will impact future play.
