Jad Abumrad on Making Supreme Court Cases Dance (Podcast)

 

 

Jad Abumrad is the executive producer and creator of More Perfect, a podcast that explores Supreme Court cases and tries to explain the impact of the Court’s decisions on the lives of Americans. The challenge is making the cases “come alive,” Abumrad told Big Law Business. “Can I make it feel exciting and visceral, but also honor the complexity of the arguments?”

In this podcast interview, Abumrad, also the creator of Radiolab, tells Big Law Business about More Perfect’s unique approach to covering the Court, what he’d ask Justice Sonia Sotomayor if he had the chance, and teases the next season of the podcast (which is coming sooner than listeners might expect).
