This case explores three themes extracted from Senate hearings around the Supreme Court vacancy and the allegations levied against Judge Kavanaugh: body and space; power-over; and the contested nature of the invisible.  In this episode, the conversation is more academic (ish) than newsworthy.  Whereas other programs have discussed Judge Kavanaugh in terms of upper-case P Politics (rule of law, advice and consent, and FBI investigations), this episode explores  lower-case p (interpersonal politics relating to gender, race, emotions, structural power, latent power and psychological trauma).
