Great stuff!

I moved to Colorado from Minnesota over a year ago. It was the first time I’ve lived somewhere else besides where I’ve grown up and what was immediately fascinating is how different penal codes can be. For instance, you can get a DWAI for blowing UNDER a .08 in Colorado!? I listen to this Podcast to learn more about Colorado Criminal Law and these guys being local Denver attorneys really know their stuff. They conduct their discussions in a light casual way too that makes it entertaining and binge worthy. Keep up the great work!
