1. Ketanji Brown Jackson Begins Historic Supreme Court Confirmation Hearings NPR 14:26

On her first day of Supreme Court confirmation hearings, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson told senators that she “stands on the shoulders” of those who came before her and that she decides cases “from a neutral posture.” While she has broad support from Democratic senators, Republicans are likely to press her on her record as a public defender when questioning begins Tuesday.

This episode: Congressional correspondent Susan Davis, justice correspondent Carrie Johnson, and legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg.
