Great Resource

I work in the healthcare field, but I’m autistic and used to have a special interest in the court system. This podcast is an amazing and thorough resource that I love listening to. It’s a great way to satisfy my remains threads of interest in the court system while also keeping up to date with current events and politics. The podcast is engaging, understandable, and quite enjoyable to listen to. I appreciate all of the professional perspectives that come on the podcast to talk about cases.
