Know Your Enemy is a podcast about the American right co-hosted by Matthew Sitman and Sam Adler-Bell. Read more about it here. You can subscribe, rate, and review to the show on Apple Podcasts and Stitcher, and receive bonus content by supporting the podcast on Patreon.

In this much anticipated crossover event, Matt and Sam take aim at the conservative legal movement with Rhiannon, Michael, and Peter—the brilliant and funny team behind the 5-4 podcast, a Know Your Enemy favorite. For those who are not yet fans of the show, it’s “a podcast about how much the Supreme Court sucks” that offers “a progressive and occasionally profane take on the ideological battles at the heart of the Court’s most important landmark cases, and an irreverent tour of all the ways in which the law is shaped by politics.” Topics discussed in this conversation include the origins of originalism, the founding of the Federalist Society, Robert Bork’s disastrous confirmation hearings, the way the media covers the Supreme Court, and how the left can fight back.

Know Your Enemy listeners can check out 5-4 here. Listeners, especially new ones, might want to revisit Know Your Enemy episode eight, “Koch’d Out,” for a deep dive into some of the foundations and institutions mentioned in this conversation.
