PenStef ,

Good but Leah, you need coffee!

I like this podcast and I enjoy Scott’s little quips in the background. Leah obviously writes really well and does great research but the monotone-lack-of-energy voice is tedious!!! She has zero humor for herself and with some tweaking this could be a really great podcast!

Interesting cases I had not heard of before

Interesting cases, a lot of which I had not heard before. Some great detailed research around legal issues arising from the cases. And I like Leahs ability to see both sides of any argument or theory!
