Conversations of the legal system from a progressive perspective.
This show represents a work of love from someone deep in the heart of the progressive based legal/political activism group. The expertice of the host shows even as the content is easy to consume. Good for anyone looking to learn a bit about the U.S. legal system on an operative level.

I'm enjoying this podcast so much! It is especially fascinating to listen to the old episodes knowing what all has changed or transpired since then!
Keep up the good work!
