Podcast: Will Baude on "First Mondays"
Michael Ramsey

Via SCOTUSblog, this "First Mondays" podcast features Will Baude (Chicago/Volokh Conspiracy) "discuss[ing] the latest news of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination. Plus, what do we mean when we talk about originalism?"

More from Professor Baude at Volokh Conspiracy

In this episode, I put forth my proposal for improving judicial confirmation hearings and announced my views about Judge Kavanaugh: "He's an incredibly conscientious person, who I think has the right way of thinking of about the law, and it would be a travesty if he were not confirmed."

I got so little pushback on that point that we then spent a lot of time talking about originalism, judicial supremacy, and lots more.
