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?

Informative and Lively Discussion

Enjoyed this podcast!!! These guys are smart, witty, and do their homework. Very well prepared and they gave a strong historical background on today’s legal issues. Highly recommend!

Sad Law Student ,

This podcast is the highlight of my day

Falling solidly between Royal and Connor on most issues, hearing them politely and respectfully duke it out is a blast. Connor's progressive, impassioned pleas balance nicely with Royal's not always entirely PC but still enjoyable jokes. And neither of them went to Stanford which is a HUGE plus.
