Episode 16: Nuclear Trump and the Pirates of SCOTUS

Show Notes

With President Trump expected to “de-certify” the Iran nuclear agreement on Friday, we walk through what that means and what happens next. Then it’s a detour into some pretty crazy reporting about national security decision-making. Finally, we learn about a 1789 statute, what it has to do with pirates, and why the Supreme Court heard a case on it this week.
