Chill, Funny, Justice

JJ Ho and Jesse are very chill and witty. If you’re bogged down by a depressing news cycle or a long day, treat yourself to the good vibes!

Love this show

I think the Covid years were tough on Judge John Hodgman, but it seems like they’re really getting back into the groove of things. Interesting disputes explored and adjudicated by an intelligent, thoughtful duo.

❤️My Favorite Podcast

I tell everyone I know about this show. When I’m feeling down, it’s my go to, for a quick pick-me-up. I love the middle ground judgments and dry (sometimes not so dry) humor. When faced with a conflict, I often ask myself “what would Judge Hodgman say about this?” 🧐
