Too Many Lawyers goes beyond the headlines about laws and court cases to tell listeners what developments in the law really mean, and how the stories impact real people. The hosts are each lawyers and legal analysts, but beyond that couldn’t be more different. One, Royal Oakes, is a libertarian, baby boomer and dad, who’s been offering analysis on network radio and television for decades; the other, Connor Oakes, is a progressive millennial and son of Royal Oakes, who offers a fresh take on the legal world. TML knows what podcast listeners want to hear about, and delivers – subjects include:--- Should America embrace Pete Buttigieg’s view, legalization of every drug, from grass, to meth, to heroin?--- Should the feds be bumping the tobacco purchase age to 21?--- Can we trust Twitter and Facebook to censor political opinions?--- Your devices are spying on you – should you go through life not trusting Alexa?--- The gig economy – do laws saying everybody with a side hustle is an “employee” help, or hurt?--- Should colleges be dumping SAT and ACT tests as a tool to fight discrimination? --- How can governments regulate “ghost guns” made by 3-D printers?--- Is facial recognition just another tool like fingerprints, or does it spell the end of privacy?--- Should Amazon face lawsuits for sales of unsafe products, when they just collect a slice as middleperson?

MAY A CONVICTED CHILD MOLESTER LURE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL KIDS WITH A SIGN SAYING “FREE FENTANYL FOR FIRST TIME USERS”?
It sounds ridiculous but police say there’s no law against a convicted child molester setting up across the street from an elementary school with a sign saying, “FREE FENTANYL FOR FIRST TIME USERS.” Maybe there SHOULD be such a law.

Santa Fe prosecutors are the gang that can’t shoot straight. First they charge Baldwin under the wrong statute. Then they pick a trial lawyer who’s ineligible to handle the case.

excellent show listes to every one of the podcast
No longer good
I used to love the show so much that I recommended to my friends and they loved it at the beginning, but lately they’ve been dropping it cause of junior oaks views, you guys give good insights on how the court system works, junior oaks is too progressive even for some of my liberal friends, the last straw for me was in the last show when he justified people looting businesses cause businesses are “too greedy”, senior oaks should give more inputs when giving opinions, my favorite part of the show is when senior oaks does the show by himself, but that doesn’t happen often enough, you lost my friends and now you lost me too…… I’m a Latino immigrant and trust me when I say that the capitalism way is the best way there is…… I can no longer listen, Have a good one guys
