Crazy Important

I’m not sure if you realize that the episode the “Cost of Representation” cracked and code and directly linked the pattern of the same white supremacy we see in 2020. Thank you for revising history and showing the correct narrative

Great big picture advice!

Mike is great at the big picture advice! I’m a solo attorney and sometimes don’t see the forest for the trees. His podcast is nice on the weekends to pick my head up from the daily grind and make sure my ship is heading in the right direction.
