My Favourite Podcast

I learned about the podcast from a professor back in September 2018 and recommend it all the time now to fellow law students. There’s so much to learn from every episode! I can’t thank Mr. Robichaud enough for creating and sharing such great content.

Author!! ,

Robichaud Doin' it Right

Once I start, I can't stop listening to these podcasts. Sean is doing this himself, entirely at his expense and artistry, and it's remarkable that he provides this awesome podcast to everyone. I'm a fan.
