About This Show
Every episode, legal expert Andrew and comic relief Thomas will tackle a popular legal topic and give you all the tools you need to understand the issue and win every argument you have on Facebook, with your Uncle Frank, or wherever someone is wrong on the Internet. It's law. It's politics. It's fun. We don't tell you what to think, we just set up the Opening Arguments.

OA80: Flashback Friday (featuring Health Care, The Slants, and Gerrymandering!)
4 days ago
It's our first Flashback Friday! On today's episode, we revisit topics from previous episodes that are once again back in the news. We begin with the breaking-est of breaking news, the new Senate version of the AHCA that literally just got released right before the show was scheduled to record. What's in the new bill? Listen and find out! After that, our main segment goes through the recent Supreme Court victory for our friend Simon Tam of the Slants, who previewed this case for us way back on Episode 33. Find out what the ruling means and how it might impact future issues (like a certain D.C.-area football team). After that, we take a look at the Supreme Court's recent grant of certiorari in the Wisconsin gerrymandering case we discussed back in Episode 54. What's the prognosis for whether the Supreme Court will finally do something about partisan gerrymandering? Listen and find out! Finally, we end with a brand new Thomas (and Denise) Take the Bar Exam Question #29, in which next week's guest, Denise Howell, joins the guys for a preview and plays along. Remember that you too can play along by following our Twitter feed (@Openargs) and/or our Facebook Page and quoting the Tweet or Facebook Post that announces this episode along with your guess and reason(s). Answers, as always, drop on Tuesday. Recent Appearances None. But if you're on the East Coast, you should check out Andrew's speech to the Lehigh Valley Skeptics on "Skepticism and the Law" on July 2, 2017 at 11 am by clicking here. Show Notes & Links Flash back to our first discussion with Simon Tam of the Slants on Episode 33, and keep groovin' with gerrymandering by listening to Episode 54. This is the text of the Senate's version of the AHCA. MACPAC's
