My Favorite Pod

The two hosts, with their slightly differing worldviews, bring balanced perspective on current events through a lawyer lens. I hope they increase to 3-4 shows a week.

I am just starting to listen to this podcast on a regular basis. Always enjoyed David on NR and his colleague Sarah seems terrific. Very good education today on Stone jury selection process. Together with Andy McCarthy’ lessons on how sentencing guidelines work it was a very educational day. I recommend the podcast.

A Great Podcast!

I’ve followed David for a few years now, and getting to know Sarah’s voice has been very worthwhile. This quickly became one of my regular podcasts.
