Canadian appreciated

Highly educational and interesting to this non-law-educated Canadian who still struggles with the fact the while world seems to be leaning to he right yet this is my dose of hope from the legal perspective. Not so serious i don't also enjoy a good laugh, but number one informative with good breakdown expectations of each case/situation.

Top drawer pod

This pod is amazing! Imani and Jess bring us into a world most don't think about and do it with energy and knowledge which makes it a real treat. I am constantly in awe of their skills and how much they have opened my eyes to serious legal issues which affect so many people, everyday.
