Helpful Advice in Easy to Understand Terms

I’ve found this podcast really insightful and easy to listen to! Their ability to bring up topics and break it down into practical advice is something that is missing from most podcasts in this genre. Would recommend this for anyone struggling with legal issues and unsure of where to start.
