Great podcast

Great content and explanation but I do have to mention the vocal fray is excessive irritating at times.

Two Really Clever People

This podcast is hosted by two terrific legal minds who are informed and able to share their information coherently. This is not background music. You need to concentrate but I view that as a really good thing. No 1.5 for this baby. The only thing I can fault it with is sometimes the vocal fry gets competitive:)
