    The Valley Current®: What Will the 22nd Century Silicon Valley Look Like?

    The Valley Current®: What Will the 22nd Century Silicon Valley Look Like?

    The future may be 80 years away, but we can already project the general way the future will shape up. For instance, even though diet and exercise plans have always been a thing, we now get feedback wearable devices that tell us all the information our grandparents never got. Then you think about our ability to get around. The rising price of gasoline may mean it’s too expensive to get around right now, but more car companies are debuting electric models and some of them with autonomous driving features! Things might not be as easy and automated as it was on The Jetson’s yet, but for a cartoon that aired 60 years ago, it’s hard to imagine that that type of future is far from where we are today.

    The Valley Current®: How Will Secular Law and Religious Law Ultimately Impact the Continuing Roe v. Wade Controversy?

    The Valley Current®: How Will Secular Law and Religious Law Ultimately Impact the Continuing Roe v. Wade Controversy?

    The abortion debate keeps getting bigger and bigger. On May 25th, Oklahoma passed the strictest pro-life law in America banning all abortion procedures from conception. According to Justice Scalia’s dissent about the 10 Commandments in the courthouse, America has always been and should be a religious country which makes you wonder what role does religion place in daily life. Jack Russo and Rafael Chodos discuss the separation of church and state when it comes to a topic where religious and secular laws overlap.
    On a related note, law firms are looking for more capital despite being part of a trillion-dollar business. Litigation lenders have only bought into a small slice of that money, less than 10%, leaving the industry ripe for some serious growth. Together these two are paving the way for a newer model of litigation that will be driven by explicitly by profit instead of service and ethics. Jack Russo asks Rafael Chodos how for-profit law firms will play into the development of secular law.

    The Valley Current®: Did SCOTUS Suffer a Cyber Breach Last Night?

    The Valley Current®: Did SCOTUS Suffer a Cyber Breach Last Night?

    How long has it been since you last read Roe v Wade? Whether you agree with the outcome or not, you might agree with Professor Rafael Chodos that it is not a very persuasive decision overall. Recently, a draft opinion on reproductive rights was leaked and the first page of it is all you really need to read to see that there is an ongoing effort overturn the 50-year-old landmark decision, just not in the way you might think. In his opinion, Justice Samuel Alito argues that Roe v Wade represents a departure by the Supreme Court from its proper role, but is there something more shocking about this document? Jack Russo and Rafael Chodos discuss how this stolen document was released when it is believed that the Supreme Court guards its computer system well.

    The Valley Current®: Is the 2024 POTUS Election Likely to Focus on the Next SCOTUS Vacancy? - Part 2

    The Valley Current®: Is the 2024 POTUS Election Likely to Focus on the Next SCOTUS Vacancy? - Part 2

    You might not have to read the leaked opinion to learn anything new about Samuel Alito’s opinion on Roe v. Wade, but the real eye-opener within the treatise was Alito’s analysis on 5 factors that generate reasons for reversing precedent followed by a long list of cases that have been reversed by the Supreme Court. Looking at the numbers, a majority of Americans seem to be okay with conditional abortions, but that number is far from overwhelming. Jack Russo asks Professor Robert Acker what the role of stare decisis is in a world that changes rapidly when the Supreme Court looks at these decisions through different lenses over different periods of time. Some justices are talking about reversing this issue openly and with Justice Breyer set to retire, the 2024 Presidential election will likely be a major factor for both parties looking to take a SCOTUS majority.

    The Valley Current®: What is the way to solve homelessness in SF?

    The Valley Current®: What is the way to solve homelessness in SF?

    What’s been going on in San Francisco? The city has always had a seedy reputation, but it’s starting to feel like calling these open-air drug markets “homeless encampments” is just plain crazy. Watching these encampments grow by the thousands every year is bound to pull on anyone with a compassionate heart and something needs to be done about it? A lot of what we see on the streets has less to do with affordable housing and more to do with mental health, drug addiction, and services and policies that act like magnets to these groups. Jack Russo and Melissa Cope discuss if anything can be done to solve the homeless crisis plaguing San Francisco.

Knowledge and Info with a Heart

I’ve listened to several of these podcasts, and my interest lies within the startup culture. Jack Russo genuinely passes along good information, and humanizes the startup, invention, and legal processes. His guests are treated like friends, and the discussions cover insider notes that are not apparent to someone without a legal background. I have subscribed to the podcast, and look forward to more episodes. Thank you for providing relevant and future forward content!
