9-10 am and 7-8 pm RadioLab Presents More Perfect: Kittens Kick The Giggly Blue Robot All Summer. We tend to think of the Supreme Court justices as all-powerful guardians of the constitution, issuing momentous rulings from on high. They seem at once powerful, and unknowable; all lacy collars and black robes. But they haven’t always been so, you know, supreme. On this episode of Radiolab’s More Perfect, we go all the way back to the case that, in a lot of ways, is the beginning of the court we know today.
