***Please Note: AirTalk will be playing the Prop 8 arguments in their ENTIRETY, beginning at 11:00am. We will not be carrying the usual NPR newsbreaks at the top of each hour. Larry and noted USC law professor Jody Armour (in studio) will provide play-by-play commentary as the arguments run. Arguments lasted around one hour 20 minutes. After arguments conclude, we’ll break for credits, then return to Larry and Jody plus we’ll have several experts join us by phone to analyze what we heard. We’ll break again for credits at 12:39pm, then resume our conversation and incorporate calls from listeners.
