Engaging Podcast

Really like the insights and banter between these two. Learned a lot about the law, especially con law.

Excellent series. Worth your time

Interesting, Entertaining, and Educational

Not just for lawyers, but also for the everyday person. Only a few episodes in, but Geoff and Mike provide some thought provoking conversation on some very well known movies, while also being very entertaining. If nothing else, it’s yet another reason to rewatch some great old(ish) movies!
