Too good to fall asleep to

Even though John Hodgman publicly shamed me in 2014 for bringing my daughter to a grown up comedy show I’ve become obsessed with this podcast. JJH dispenses real wisdom and has genuine compassion for the litigants.

Weird dad vibes!

This show satisfies my need for weird dad vibes and pop culture references. I’ve been listening for many years and I always enjoy myself. Thanks!!

Never miss it

I don’t know how they do it, but every episode- no matter how goofy the dispute - is touching. John finds a ton of funny but also a lot of warmth in the relationships between the “litigants” and the entire show and its audience feels like a community of well-meaning people who want to do right by one another.
