For the next few weeks on Deep Background, in addition to our regular show we’re bringing you a special five-part series about the Supreme Court’s dramatic rightward turn.

This episode: the historic rise of the Federalist Society, how a small group of students 40 years ago started a club that changed the face of the federal judiciary. If Judge Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed, six of the nine Supreme Court Justices will be current or former members of the organization.
