Amazing - Just One Gripe

I LOVE this podcast and I really enjoy that it focuses not on who is innocent or guilty but on legal process. My one gripe - I believe the female host is married to the lawyer host. She asks many questions that I know he’ll have the answer to which is: ‘It’s the attorney’s job to pull out EVERY stop for their client within the framework of the law.’ This usually comes anytime she asks him to judge innocence or guilt. If I can anticipate this by now, why can’t she? :)

Good show, annoying legal expert.

The “legal eagle” got it all wrong. His prediction was an all-or-nothing verdict, leaning toward all Not Guilty. Throughout the podcast he sided with the defense and overweighted the exculpatory evidence, nailing the prosecution for every little misstep. Don’t listen to anything he says and let’s get a DIFFERENT LEGAL EXPERT NEXT TIME.

Thank you

Thank you for helping us understand the Holmes proceedings. The added bonus of how slow you speak and how carefully you annunciate helps us common listeners who do not work in law. The case is fascinating and I look forward finally to the verdict.
