Apparently I am interested in contract law? 🤔

The Legal Geeks are a great accompaniment to The Mandalorian. I’m learning whether The Client hiring multiple bounty hunters after The Mandalorian accepts the job is Tortious Interference or not, because of an assumed open contract. Really next level geekery.

Deep cut and fun!

Entertaining and educational at the same time! Excellent podcast for multi-taskers.
