What was Jo Farrell’s role? What should we think of Andrea Constand, the one Cosby accuser who got big money and a criminal verdict in her favor? How was it determined that only five other victims could testify as to Cosby's modus operandi and how were they selected? What about Cosby’s wife Camille and TV wife Phylicia Rashad?

Also answering these questions is key member of the Cosby prosecution team, M. Stewart Ryan, who guests in Craig’s Lawyers’ Lounge.

Craig makes me a better Colorado Native
I try very hard to keep up with all news in Colorado and for me Craig’s show is imperative in that pursuit.
The best podcast of my week!
Trump derangement syndrome got ahold of Craig
I used to really enjoy listening to Craig Silverman. After getting fired from KNUS and starting this podcast, he became exhausting to listen to. All he can talk about is Trump. There’s plenty of anti Trump podcasts to listen to. I enjoyed his discussion of local topics, but it’s just Trump now.
