    Lenny Bruce Obscenity Trials - Reeling

Great show, wish there were more episodes

Host is great. I like that he’s an actor and has a law degree. He’s very good at the voices. And glad there are no boring interview episodes. Those always feel like filler episodes on Wondery. We just want the stories from these podcasts. Hope they have more episodes!

I have been listening to a few seasons and the only time I hear of someone’s background is when he’s Jewish, why is that? Why not point out the background of any other character….
