NPR recently interviewed retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens who for the first time in 35 years was not on the bench on Monday, as the Supreme Court opened it's new term.
Several articles discuss the Court's first day: USA Today covers Monday's events as well as the Associated Press. The Wall Street Journal has musings about newly appointed Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan. You can also check out SCOTUSblog which covers the arguments of the Supreme Court with more analysis.

This just in... the Supreme Court announced today that they will soon be providing audio recordings of all oral arguments freely on their website. You will be able to download the recordings or simply listen through the court's website. This will begin with the October Term 2010, with audio recordings being available at the end of each argument week. The first arguments are heard on the first Monday in October, which for this year will be October 4th.
Read more here about how oral arguments are heard in the Supreme Court. View the Court's calendar of days they will hear arguments. Also, a Yahoo article explains about broadcasters requesting same-day release recordings in the past, which may provide some reasoning as to why the Supreme Court will be providing the recordings now.
If you're curious, you can currently hear audio recordings from the Supreme Court provided by the website Oyez.org. They have been providing audio from the Supreme Court since around 1993.
