Two lawyers talking about the law and other stuff.

    Vulgar Complexity Preview

    Hi friends,
    Abi here. I want to share with you a preview of a podcast series I started with C Derick Varn of VarnVlog. Varn is a prolific podcaster/vlogger with an incredible depth of knowledge. This podcast series is an exploration of politics and science with a grounding in Complexity. It will hopefully be an interesting series. I also hope to record Against the Law with Grainne again soon, but if you missed my voice, you can get a taste here.

    Ollie For President

    Ollie For President

    Impeachment is the topic of the day, maybe it will result in something good. Americans love an accent. Election interference is bad and has been worse. The debates might be stupid. HBO's Watchmen is asking the wrong questions.

    Encounters with Epstein

    Encounters with Epstein

    Grainne saw Jeffrey Epstein in jail. Abi thinks we need to end the war on drugs. If we're gonna have prisons (which we shouldn't), prisoners should have access to education. Bernie has an army.

    I'm Back! 
    This is the season 2 launch. Life/work has kept us from recording lately, but here is a short episode with just Abi. Thanks to everyone who encouraged me to do this. This episode's topic is the Supreme Court and why the left should think seriously about engaging with the courts.
