Can’t get away from politics.

Why does everyone have to whine about Trump in 2021. The mans been out of office for 2 years yet these hosts can’t stop bringing him up. Or believing that the world is going to end due to climate change. Get over yourselves the worlds bot ending, and Trumps political career is over. He’s not winning in 2022. And if you think the movie the day after tomorrow is going to happen than call me, I have a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn.

LSAT Advice is Helpful. Other Content is Garbage

These hosts did well on the LSAT. That’s their strength. Therefore, that’s the best part of this podcast’s content. Their musings on the law, legal practice, law school advice, and legal academia are based on ill-informed opinions and reflect the fact that they don’t really operate in those worlds.
