Heightened Scrutiny is a podcast about the Supreme Court’s landmark civil rights cases. It is hosted by Joe Dunman, an attorney and professor who teaches constitutional law and legal writing when he's not practicing law or making podcasts.

The Supreme Court is one of the most important institutions in America, but very few of us know much about how it works or how it reached the landmark decisions that have dramatically altered how we think about liberty, due process, and equality. Heightened Scrutiny explores the landmark decisions of the Supreme Court in what is hopefully a fast-paced and interesting way.

Heightened Scrutiny isn’t just for law students or lawyers, though. It’s for everyone who cares about our legal system, our civil rights, and our Constitution. But researching, writing, recording, and editing each episode takes a LOT of time and effort.

Your generous support through a recurring monthly donation will make the production of Heightened Scrutiny a little easier, and help to keep it going over many months and years to come. You can donate by clicking the red “become a patron” button on this page. You will qualify for one or more Tiers of Generosity depending on how much you decide to give, and each tier comes with one or more swanky rewards.

Thank you very much for your ears and your generosity!

With your support, Heightened Scrutiny can not only be self-sufficient, but also expand its promotional reach and significantly upgrade its audio and editing equipment to produce the very best quality podcast possible. Also, the regular podcast can be supplemented with special video content, including more in-depth discussions about older cases that lack oral argument audio clips, and are therefore tougher to present in an exciting way using sound alone.
