Spreading the word of justice

I’ve been listening since Glenn’s breakdown of unpacking the courts and soak in all the knowledge, wisdom, and experience he provides. He has a unique ability to breakdown the law that is easily understandable for even complex topics. I let all my friends know about your podcast and have even used Glenn’s breakdowns when my husband has legal questions about the election. Keep the fight for justice alive and THANK YOU!

Truth

I am not a lawyer and I love Glenn’s podcast. I learn a lot and am so grateful he shares his thoughts. I have passed this on to my retired lawyer brother and many friends . Thank you Glenn. I’ll definitely go to Patrion.com and chip in. Castle

So appreciative

For your work. During this time. Would love to see you collaborate with the folks over at TYT or at min, let cenk interview you. You’d make a powerful team.

Also - how wonderful if we could have an AG with a mind for justice and compassion for the victims. Possible? #glennkirschnerforAG
