Government Gone Wild – Episode 3: Judicial Branch


Check out this episode and many more on our Patreon!

In the third episode of our Government Gone Wild series, we discuss the changes of the judicial branch of the United States federal government from the time it was established to today.

In this episode, we explore the powers of the judicial branch as laid out by the Constitution of the United States. We take some time to break down exactly what the Constitution says, and what it means. We also discuss where powers of the judicial branch not located in the Constitution have come from, as well as some landmark decisions made by the Supreme Court and the effects they’ve had on how our laws are carried out. Please enjoy as we discuss our judicial branch gone wild!
