I’m glad to find a show that can blend specific cases and stories with broad concepts that are as relevant today as when they occurred. I hope this show continues long into the future.
Definitely worth a listen
Excellent podcast - complex subject matter made easy to understand, especially for someone like me who doesn’t have a law background. The hosts do a really good job too, the show is really polished.
Informative and fun
Great law cases in an engaging way
