Episode 207: Pearls Are In the Eye of the Beholder

August 11, 2021

It’s been a long summer break for the podcast, but we’re back! Tune in today as Professors Chesney and Vladeck discuss and debate:

  1. AUMF reform prospects (2001 AUMF in particular)
  2. Ongoing uncertainty as to the fate of the Presidential Policy Guidance re use of lethal force outside areas of active hostilities
  3. Litigation exploring whether a unanimous panel should be required in courts-martial
  4. A semi-deep dive into Jacobson, the 1905 Supreme Court case that upheld a local mandatory vaccination order (targeting smallpox) in the face of what we would today describe as a substantive due process fundamental rights/liberty claim.
  5. How about that CDC rent-moratorium extension?

And, yes, we lament the apparent collapse of the Mets, while also recommending some good books and podcasts!
