It's a mostly chronological explanation of ways the Supreme Court ruled on state vs national power cases in the 1830s-1870s. Some information he delivers is basic review of decisions I already know (Dred Scott, for example). Then suddenly he delves into something new, but I'm not sure how that thing connects to the other things.
- Let me double the playback speed on stuff I already know.
- I could replay / pause the parts that I didn't understand.
- And, heck, some more visuals would help as well. Nothing fancy, but even a timeline!
Why bother making it a live lecture when we aren't really interacting? This is more like sitting through a book read-aloud, when I'd rather just read or skim at my own speed.
One positive aspect of the experience: I'm getting reminders about why I present the way that I do, and need to keep myself aware of my own verbal tics (starting sentences with Okay... or So...).
