Sexual Exploitation Laws & Child Victims
In a recent incident in Columbus, Ohio, an 11 year old girl was manipulated into sending explicit photos to an adult. After law enforcement was called by the girl’s father, a police officer told the father his daughter could face child porn charges for her actions.

Serious, substantive discussion of legal topics in the news
This is meat & potatoes. Topics are driven by the news cycle, but the discussion focuses on legal analysis instead of politics or the horse race. Come prepared and you won't be disappointed.
Haven’t listened in a while, but thought I’d check out the SCOTUS abortion episode. It’s just two lawyers agreeing based on superficial logic. Bring back a lawyer with an opposing view. Argue. Isn’t that what you’re supposed to do?
Very one-sided take on legal topics
This is an incredibly biased, one-sided take on legal topics. A good lawyer understands that there’s more than one side to an issue and explores both sides to build a stronger case. Unfortunately, this podcast presents the law as though the progressive view is the only legitimate position.
