SHORT CIRCUIT PODCAST

Episode 195: Pride and Prejudice in Prison

What’s too hot a novel for a prisoner? Apparently “Pride and Prejudice: The Wild and Wanton Edition” meets that standard. The Eighth Circuit dug into this prurient issue and essentially said it violates the First Amendment to ban modern and Renaissance art in prison, but not to ban fan fiction. Rob Johnson takes us through a wild and lustful tale of free speech law, including the court’s bizarre discussion of when overbreadth claims are moot. Then your host Anthony Sanders spins a yarn about a wild night out, implied consent laws, and Section 1983 not being very useful if you’ve already got your license back. Parents, make your own choice, but this might be a good episode not to have younger children listen to.
