Fun fact: when Stephen Breyer was a teenager at San Francisco's Lowell High School in the 1950s, he debated future governor Jerry Brown. Now, as a justice for the U.S. Supreme Court, Breyer hears arguments central to the lives of Americans and our country's governance -- topics as wide-ranging as same-sex marriage and campaign finance. Breyer joins us to talk about life as a Supreme Court justice, his book "The Court and the World" and whether legal decisions in other countries should influence those in the U.S.

Guests:

Stephen Breyer, associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court and author most recently of "The Court and the World: American Law and the New Global Realities"
