Every Supreme Court decision that has shaped our nation's history -- and that will guide its future -- started out as a disagreement between people. As human drama. As conflict. The law is exciting, entertaining, even soulful. But you wouldn't know it from the boring articles you read in the paper, or the dry segments you see on the nightly news. Somewhere between the courthouse and your house, the law has lost its luster... until now. On Lex Appeal, we won't just tell you what the court decided, but HOW it decided. We won't just tell you what law Congress just passed, but how that law came to be. Simply put, we'll explain how the law really works. And we'll have fun doing it. Who ever said the law isn't sexy?

Truly a fascinating approach to law! Easy to follow and understand. Keep it up guys.
It's too sexy for a podcast..
Lex Appeal has found a niche in my podcast collection. Great for listening to in the car, easy enough to follow (and drive safely) and great for adding some new topics to water cooler conversations. Even though I follow politics closely Lex Appeal has nuggets of wisdom that can only come from knowing law like lawyers do, and delivering it with a dash of wit, humor, and banter that makes Lex Appeal one of few podcasts I actually wait for new episodes to come out with anticipation. Keep it up gentleman, it's very lexy...
Now that I'm hooked...
... you gotta keep me supplied! Thanks, guys!
