    Jake Halpern | Mob Land

    Let's go back to 1970's Chicago when the mob ruled the courts. What could go wrong? I had an incredible conversation with the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, Jake Halpern.

    Jake is the host of the new investigative podcast, Mob Land, which just dropped this week! The story centers around Bob Cooley - a mafia "fixer" turned FBI cooperator. Jake and I get into whether or not Bob can be trusted, what justice is or isn't — especially when corruption exists — and I think I stun Jake into silence with a Real Housewives analogy.

    Jake is an excellent storyteller making this a highly enjoyable conversation. Listen, enjoy, then go check out Mob Land!

    Laurie Gilbertson | Legal Entrepreneurs for Justice!

    Ethical, transparent and accessible. Is that what comes to mind when you think of private law practice? Me either. But the work my guest today is doing, is trying to change all that.

    Laurie Gilbert left her work as a Prosecutor in New York City, where she tried everything from fraud to murder cases. In fact her last case was highly unique in that it took three times to get the defendant an attempted murder conviction despite the plethora of evidence and solid witnesses. This was the trial of Christopher Prince in Queens, New York.

    She now sits on the board of Legal Entrepreneurs for Justice - a legal incubator, designed to operate in a totally new way. I loved learning about this and was thrilled when Laurie shared that these are cropping up across the Unites States, with about 70- 80 in existence. You can check and see if your state has a "legal incubator" here:

    https://www.americanbar.org/groups/delivery_legal_services/initiatives_awards/program_main/

    Listen as Laurie shares the many ways these new models of practicing law are helping level the playing field.

    We round out the conversation with some good ol' Elizabeth Holmes commentary, and Laurie leaves us with her personal thoughts on justice. You can learn more about Legal Entrepreneurs for Justice and Laurie's consulting work via the links below:

    Sam Walker | American Vigilante Podcast

    Sam Walker | American Vigilante Podcast

    Content warning: Today's episode deals with kidnapping and abuse of minors and has some harsh language in one part. Please listen with care.

    Today's big question: Is it ever ok to do the wrong thing, for the right reason? We're talking about vigilantes on the show today.

    My guest, Sam Walker, is a multi-award winning journalist, broadcaster and podcaster. Her show, American Vigilante, is about a man named KC. KC is the American Vigilante. A hugely complex, intelligent, contradictory man who could save your life but end it too. He leads a group of violent men standing on the blurred line between right and wrong, between revenge and redemption. A man you want on your side when it all falls apart. American Vigilante is true crime, but so much more. It’s saving abducted children, it’s stepping beyond the law. It’s rescue missions, assassination attempts and last-gasp protection. It’s all the stuff you hope never comes to you, until it does.

    We delve into the ethics around vigilantism, the American spirit that seems to support this rogue work, and we find ourselves going around and around the question landing somewhere in that murky gray area, which should really be familiar by now.

    Listen to American Vigilante wherever you get your podcasts! https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/american-vigilante/id1583938816
