Eh. It’s “Special Edition!” because it’s coming to you a day late. You’ll hear about why when you listen.
So Kegstand Kavanaugh is once again dominating the news cycle and, therefore, the podcast. We also discuss some baseball to start with. We get into some loosely affiliated topics surrounding Kavanaugh like generational wars, nerds vs jocks, the intersection of comedy and political correctness. Of course we wander. But not all who wander are lost.
A day late and a weeeeee bit drunk, but hey we’re here! Weekend project was to create an isolation box for my mic, so we’ll see how that sounds.
On to the good stuff. We hit a range of stuff including the controversy around the firing of Roseanne, the literal actual stacks of cash involved in the resignation of Missouri Governor Greitens, the most recent Supreme Court decisions, OMGTHECHILDRENZZZZ at the border, the latest in gaming news, and our recommendations on podcasts. And you just know we wander far afield of even that diversified set of topics.
Hey folks, late post due to all the crap that’s explained in the first couple minutes.
This week, Alex and I talk about Trump. Trump and Russia. Trump and Tweets. Trump and MS-13. We were fairly Trump centric.
We touched on the shooting in Santa Fe and a related topic that is important to Alex and I. Important enough that we’re gonna kick it down the road just a bit until we can devote the proper amount of time to it.
A listener asked about books on law/legal theory for folks who have NOT been through law school. So we complied with a list of recommendations. Here you go:
This week covers a decent bit of legal stuff. And some just plain bizarre stuff. Like Stormy Daniels’ lawyer’s conspiracy weirdness. And the fact that he’s likely to be disbarred soon over MASSIVE tax evasion.
We spend a good chunk of the pod going through several of the SCOTUS cases handed down today that deal with states rights, 4th amendment privacy and seizure rights, 6th amendment (of all things) and how it applies to the relationship between counsel and client, and wiretapping. We also get into the absolute hit job that was successfully executed via the legal system on Missouri Gov Greitens.
So after a week off due to crappy internet on my part, we’re back and rolling this week. And ohhhhh all the stupid people.
We talk about John “Logan Act” Kerry, Bob Mueller, the breaking news regarding NY AG Eric Schneiderman, the Alphabet/gay rights insanity (yup, Alex went there), David French’s post at NRO about Trump and Evangelicals, and of course we wander about as always.
