    "nice companion to reading about the case elsewhere"

    This new series on audible looks to be a cool gold mine, although this is the first I've listened to. Griswold vs Connecticut is one of those cases you should know about as a non lawyer. I first heard of it from my late grandmother in law who used to shuttle women in need of birth control from CT to NY due to the medieval CT laws. This Oyez recording is a great piece of history. But it needs to be supplemented by a bit of side reading about the case. In the Supreme Court Q&A there is a lot of back & forth about constitutional arcana that is hard to follow without outside knowledge.

    The sound quality isn't terrific. You can hear the 2 lawyers very clearly but often cannot hear (or identify) the justices. The lawyers do most of the talking so that was acceptable. I am sure the written transcript is available on the internet to fill in the blanks.
