About the podcast

“More Perfect” is the first spin-off series presented by Radiolab, produced by WNYC Studios in New York City. The series explores how the Supreme Court shapes “everything from marriage and money, to safety and sex for an entire nation.” Weekly episodes are presented every Thursday.

Smith contributes to the series’ first episode, “Into the Thicket.” It describes Baker v. Carr, a 1962 court case that the late Chief Justice Earl Warren described as the most important case of his tenure on the High Court.

One key player in the case was Charles Evans Whittaker, the subject of Smith’s biography.
