Dahlia is one of the coolest, smartest human beings I've ever met and I felt very privileged to have the opportunity to talk to her about this amazing new book which is already a New York Times bestseller in its first week! I didnt add much else to todays show because we talked for almost an hour.  Here is more on Dahlia and her amazing and important new book... Stand Up is a daily podcast. I book,host,edit, post and promote new episodes with brilliant guests every day. Please subscribe now for as little as 5$ and gain access to a community of over 800 awesome, curious, kind, funny, brilliant, generous souls.... Dahlia Lithwick is the senior legal correspondent at Slate and host of Amicus, Slate's award-winning biweekly podcast about the law.  Her work has also appeared in The New York Times, Harper's, The New Yorker, The Washington Post, The New Republic, and Commentary, among other places. Lithwick won a 2013 National Magazine Award for her columns on the Affordable Care Act. She was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in October, 2018. ABOUT LADY JUSTICE “Stirring…Lithwick's approach, interweaving interviews with legal commentary, allows her subjects to shine…Inspiring.”—New York Times Book Review “In Dahlia Lithwick's urgent, engaging Lady Justice, Dobbs serves as a devastating bookend to a story that begins in hope.”—Boston Globe Dahlia Lithwick, one of the nation's foremost legal commentators, tells the gripping and heroic story of the women lawyers who fought the racism, sexism, and xenophobia of Donald Trump's presidency—and won After the sudden shock of Donald Trump's victory over Hillary Clinton in 2016, many Americans felt lost and uncertain. It was clear he and his administration were going to pursue a series of retrograde, devastating policies. What could be done?   Immediately, women lawyers all around the country, independently of each other, sprang into action, and they had a common goal: they weren't going to stand by in the face of injustice, while Trump, Mitch McConnell, and the Republican party did everything in their power to remake the judiciary in their own conservative image. Over the next four years, the women worked tirelessly to hold the line against the most chaotic and malign presidency in living memory. There was Sally Yates, the acting attorney general of the United States, who refused to sign off on the Muslim travel ban. And Becca Heller, the founder of a refugee assistance program who brought the fight over the travel ban to the airports. And Roberta Kaplan, the famed commercial litigator, who sued the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville. And, of course, Stacey Abrams, whose efforts to protect the voting rights of millions of Georgians may well have been what won the Senate for the Democrats in 2020. These are just a handful of the stories Lithwick dramatizes in thrilling detail to tell a brand-new and deeply inspiring account of the Trump years. With unparalleled access to her subjects, she has written a luminous book, not about the villains of the Trump years, but about the heroes. And as the country confronts the news that the Supreme Court, which includes three Trump-appointed justices, will soon overturn Roe v. Wade, Lithwick shines a light on not only the major consequences of such a decision, but issues a clarion call to all who might, like the women in this book, feel the urgency to join the fight. A celebration of the tireless efforts, legal ingenuity, and indefatigable spirit of the women whose work all too often went unrecognized at the time, Lady Justice is destined to be treasured and passed from hand to hand for generations to come, not just among lawyers and law students, but among all optimistic and hopeful Americans.

The legitimacy of the U.S. Supreme Court | The popularity of the U.S. Supreme Court has been in sharp decline throughout the last two years. Since the overturning of Roe v. Wade in June of 2022, many Americans, feeling unheard and unseen by the court's decision, have been asking the question, “Why does the Supreme Court have so much power?” Dahlia Lithwick, lawyer and author of Lady Justice, explains how the latest rulings by the Supreme Court threaten the fabric of American democracy. If the Supreme Court is no longer serving the people, is it still legitimate? In this episode of How to Fix Democracy, Lithwick joins host Andrew Keen to discuss the implications for the Dobbs Ruling, the decline in popularity of the Supreme Court, and whether or not the Supreme Court can maintain its legitimacy moving forward.

The upcoming midterms will depend on the voices and votes of those in the suburbs, according to hosts Molly Jong-Fast and Andy Levy on this episode of The New Abnormal. After a key win for Democrats in New York's 19th Congressional District, where Pat Ryan defeated Republican Marc Molinaro in Tuesday's special election, Levy says that despite the bad news for the party, the Dems still need the suburban vote to get them across the line. Then, Dahlia Lithwick, who writes about the courts and the law for Slate and hosts the podcast Amicus, talks former President Donald Trump's little dust-up with the National Archives. This week, Politico revealed that the Archives had recovered more than 700 pages of classified documents from Mar-a-Lago in January and that federal investigators were concerned “by Trump's resistance to sharing them with the FBI.” Also, Max Fisher, who writes The Interpreter column for The New York Times and is the author of The Chaos Machine: The Inside Story of How Social Media Rewired Our Minds and Our World, discusses how social media “is distorting you in ways that you are probably not quite aware of.” Our GDPR privacy policy was updated on August 8, 2022.

America wanted to believe that once the Capitol Building was pieced back together following Trump's insurrection that the coup to overthrow our democracy was over. What we didn't anticipate as a nation is that what we saw on January 6th was just the dress rehearsal for the right-wing extremist SCOTUS. They have picked up where Trump's foot soldiers left off. From state courts to the SCOTUS, Badass author, writer and podcaster Dahlia Lithwick breaks down what Democrats should have seen coming decades ago but chose to ignore.

In this episode, we cover one of our all time favorite Supreme Court justices, the one and only, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. We discuss her education, her early career, the support she had from her partner, a couple of the many cases she tried, and her appointment to the Supreme Court. Then we talk about how she came to be known as RBG, her overall celebrity, her sharp yet articulate dissents, and how and why she continued to serve on the court despite various health concerns. Finally we wrap up with the huge impact that Ginsburg has had on this country, primarily in terms of equality rights and fighting for what is right. But we also talk about how her education and relationship paths can be an inspiration to many.

In the second of Amicus' Summer Series of interviews that step out of the day to day of jurisprudence to look at justice and the Supreme Court through a wide-angle lens, Dahlia Lithwick is joined by actor and playwright Heidi Shreck. Shreck created and starred in the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award - nominated “What the Constitution Means to Me” and is a fierce advocate for abortion rights. Together, they try to locate the spot at the intersection of politics, law, culture, media and art that might provide a space to adequately describe the impacts of the Dobbs decision. And that is where they find the galvanizing forces and creative feats of imagination that have served previous generations in the fight for equal rights, and that will fuel the fight to come.  Sign up for Slate Plus now to support our show.
