On this episode, we are joined by Attorney Zachary Jones to discuss his recent article for Lex Rex and why the 17th Amendment poses issues for federalism. We also discuss the decision in the recent case Denezpi v. United States and explain why the Supreme Court found that federal courts could try someone twice for the same crime without violating the double jeopardy clause of the Constitution.

All this, plus a deep dive into why keeping an elephant in the zoo isn't the same as imprisoning a person without a charge, a romantic guide to the Founding Fathers, and another batch of hot takes from the darkest corner of the internet.
