Other NPR Story

Here’s the other NPR story I heard this morning. Interesting audio piece about the joking that goes on in oral arguments at the Supreme Court. The author of the piece is Ryan Malphurs and his piece is here. Dr. Malphurs suggests “that laughter plays an important communicative function in oral argument which enables lawyers and justices to negotiate the complex barriers that constrain their interactions.”
