The Let’s Go To Court podcast brings together two of the greatest legal minds of our time. Just kidding.

We’re your hosts Kristin Caruso and Brandi Pond. What we lack in legal training we more than make up for in being completely obsessed with lawsuits. Every week, we discuss two juicy legal battles. Each episode is peppered with Brandi’s booming laugh and Kristin’s Olympic-level talent for putting the word “so” into every sentence.

The podcast started in 2018, but we’ve been having these conversations for years. What can we say? We’re just a couple of lifelong friends who love the drama of a trial. Our other interests include: liquid eyeliner, Fresca, and begging Noodles and Company to bring back the spicy chicken caesar wrap.

    Food Fight!

    Food Fight!

    Well folks, there’s no easy way to say this, so we’ll get right to it. In this episode, we announce that the podcast is coming to an end.

    Thank you all for being part of this community. The past six years have been absolutely wild. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve… talked about buttholes. (Too often, perhaps??)
    Many of you have been part of this community for years. We appreciate your warmth, your support, and your willingness to cackle along with two very goofy grown women. 

    We’re blown away by how big this little indie podcast has become. We started with one microphone on a TV tray, and we’re ending on March 29 & 30th with two sold out live shows. What a way to go. We couldn’t have done it without you.

    As you can probably imagine, this decision wasn’t an easy one. We talk about it quite a bit on this episode. Arriving at this decision has been tough, but we know that it will free us up to do what we’re meant to do. For Brandi, that’ll mean spending more time with her family, having *just one* full-time job, and getting out of content creation. For Kristin… well, first she has to get her butthole back from Brandi. After that? Who knows!

    Thank you all again for being part of this community. You’re the skeeziest scunches in all the land, the best listeners this side of the mighty Mississip’, and the meanest Bob Mosses this town has ever seen. We appreciate you.
    ….

    And now that you’re good and bummed, please hang in there for a truly disgusting story. This week, Kristin tells us about Dr. Harvey Wiley, whose relentless hard work led to the creation of America’s first consumer protection laws. We guarantee you’ll never look at milk the same way again.

    And now for a note about our process. For this episode, Kristin read a bunch of articles, then spat them back out in her very limited vocabulary. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the real experts who covered these cases.

    In this episode, Kristin pulled from:
    The “Poison Squad” episode of American Experience
    The book “The Poison Squad: One Chemist's Single-Minded Crusade for Food Safety at the Turn of the Twentieth Century” by Deborah Blum

    The Murder of Michelle Young

    The Murder of Michelle Young

    Jason Young called his sister-in-law in a panic. He told her that he’d been looking on Ebay for a purse to buy for his wife Michelle. Like a dummy, he’d printed out a few of the purses he’d been eyeballing, and then he’d left the papers in the printer and gone out of town for a business trip. He worried that Michelle would spot the printouts and ruin the surprise. Jason’s sister-in-law, Meredith Fisher, agreed to help out. But when Meredith arrived at the home, she sensed that something was amiss.

    Cyclists

    Moriah “Mo” Wilson was a rising star in the world of professional cycling. One journalist said, “She had the potential to be one of the best racers, definitely in the country, and probably in the world.” Tragically, Mo’s life was cut short in a senseless murder.

Gunna miss you guys

I recently discovered this podcast and have been binging like crazy. So sad it’s ending!

The big ick

Cancelling a show at the peak of its success to go be a mommy and a trad wife during a cost of living crisis, an attack on our reproductive rights and when many women aren’t allowed to become women… well I didn’t have that on my 2024 bingo card… bye I guess, can I have part of my year patron sub back or do you need that for an apron and baking supplies?

Feels like gabbing with your best friends

What a great podcast this is. Kristin and Brandi are both such warm, kind souls and both so hilarious. Their convo full of banter and jokes always gets me through. They really feel like some of my best friends. I’ve been bingeing the last 7 months and finally caught up. They’ve been with me while I trekked across the country making multiple trips between states for a big move. They’ve been with me while I hustled to make extra cash on the road. While I relax on the weekend with my color by number game, trying to decompress from everything. Thank you for the laughter and love. I will miss this podcast so deeply and will support you both always. 🖤
