October has already been the longest month in awhile, and we’re only a week in! Join us as our favorite corrupt Alabama sheriff is back in the news, a Maryland police sergeant is arrested at a strip club and then promptly beaten, and a Texas police department confiscating an activist’s political sign out of her own yard because they found it offensive.

The regular assortment of criminal justice f*ckery had to be delayed a few days to accommodate life. Until then, we’ve got the first of a several-part series on the Rules of Evidence and how they play out in the discussion of Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court!

A Culture of Corruption (Episode 79)

WTFsck? Volume 7 (Episode 73)

Text on black background that reads "WTFsck? (Volume 7)"

T. Greg’s been out of town for Independence Day, so that means we turn the show over to YOU! In this Supreme Court-heavy WTFsck, we give you answers to questions like: Are “close” Supreme Court opinions less powerful than other ones? Can you appeal a Supreme Court decision? And why does it matter who appoints the justices anyway? Plus several more!
