MUST LISTEN!

Joel is the best at combining his love for law and his love for sports at the same time. He has a wide range of knowledge, and is funny at the same time. Great listen!

Excellent

I've known Joel for 29 years. He's a great guy, and has been consistent in his life.

I'm glad that he's pursuing the medium as an outlet to highlight the funny aspects of "The Law."

This will prove to be entertaining and educational. I recommend the podcast, and also the person. Enjoy!!!!
