The Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts has launched a podcast series discussing landmark Supreme Court cases. The series, Supreme Court Landmarks, discusses cases that have shaped American life.

Each episode features a law professor presenting a brief discussion of a landmark case. The professor explains the case’s background, the key arguments, the decision, and why the case has continuing importance.

As of this writing, only two episodes have been posted. In one, Prof. Melanie Wilson, University of Kansas School of Law discusses the 1961 case, Mapp v. Ohio. In the other, Prof. Frederick Schauer of the University of Virginia School of Law discusses the 1989 case, Texas v. Johnson. New episodes will be added each month.
