Episode Notes

Joe and Kathryn have a lot to break down this week. Amy Coney Barrett’s supporters tried to give her a nickname and managed to make an even bigger mess of it. As she begins her hearings, you’ll not be able to get her new nickname out of your head. Meanwhile, Biglaw firms are split on whether or not to give bonuses to associates right now, but Kathryn explains that it looks better to pay now than to wait. And the online bar exams held last week were riddled with glitches, but examiners are committed to pretending it went off without a hitch.
