The Supreme Court hears arguments this week on Clapper v. Amnesty International, a case that will decide whether or not the federal government can be sued for wiretapping U.S. citizens. The Atlantic's Garrett Epps is following the hearing and shares his findings with us.

Plus, we get an update from Ron Zeitlinger of The Jersey Journal about North Jersey's recovery from Hurricane Sandy and talk with Seattle Times reporter Emily Heffter about the political impact of GOP Congressional candidate John Koster's remarks on "the rape thing." We'll also listen back to some of the most frightening voices in old-time radio, and Sara Dickerman joins us with a lunch recommendation.
