Justice Stephen Breyer's retirement gives the Biden Administration something they desperately need: the opportunity to control a news cycle after weeks of bad economic headlines, worse polling, and international tension.

In this episode of Radio Rothbard, Ryan McMaken and Tho Bishop take a look at some of the names being floated around for Breyer's replacement, and expose the inherently political nature of the Supreme Court.
