The Amy Coney Barrett hearings have exposed how badly the left is losing the ideological battle for the courts. Law Professor and expert on conservative legal philosophy Eric Segall exposes the flimsy pretext of the "textualist" judge, journalist and former Bernie Sanders speechwriter David Sirota makes the procedural case for how Democrats could have slowed down the Barrett nomination, and Current Affairs co-founder and editor-in-chief Nathan J. Robinson shares what he learned from a deep dive into ACB's judicial record. The panel discusses Barrett hearing highlights, court packing strategies, and how to get Democrats to care about the judicial appointments between election cycles. At the top, Brie and Virgil assess the public response to their debate with Noam Chomsky. A debate which, of course, they won.

We're joined by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Chris Hedges to get his take on the state of the left: What are the structural factors and ethical rationalizations that keep congressional progressives from taking the adversarial approach required to push a united Democratic government left? How can we parse good faith excuses from the bad, and what does history tell us about the way forward? But first, we check in with Zoe Muellner who is working to organize Colectivo, a midwestern coffee chain. And at the top, Virgil and Brie briefly follow up on the controversy surrounding this week's premium episode: Has Black Twitter really canceled Virgil?
