So good it should be illegal
Listening to this podcast makes me feel smarter. Keep up the good work!
Awesome take on film
An interesting lens to view movies in popular culture through legal issues. The discussions are engaging, the host/s are amiable, and the concept is brilliant I'm rooting for this podcast!
Super Entertaining, Weirdly Informative
I have no legal background, haven't seen most of the films they cover, but this is still one of my favorite podcasts! So entertaining, but also really informative. Did you know there is genuine legal precedent that monkeys cannot hold copyright?
