trust meeeee ,

Only one problem

Good synopsis of the law. But focuses heavily on the breakdown of the court and partisanship. Insistent on framing judges as conservative and liberal is not that productive. Would be more interesting if focused on methodology of the justices rather than perceived partisanship or lack thereof.

Lisa Montgomery episode

The Lisa Montgomery podcast was terrific. Informative and heart wrenching.

Annoying thumping

I was so excited to listen to this new podcast until I started hearing the thumping noises that came through the low end sound frequencies of Jordan‘s voice pounding in my head. Apparently he doesn’t know how to properly utilize in microphone. Maybe his mouth is too close to the mic I don’t know. It sounded awful both in my car stereo and AirPods.
