Love this podcast!
This is an eye-opening podcast about the criminal justice system presented by two super passionate young public defenders who love what they do. I started at the very beginning and they are definitely coming into their own and finding their voices - it gets better and better! Mixed with humor, music, pop culture, current events, a smattering of sports talk, and of course firsthand, behind-the-scenes experience, they make law super interesting for listeners. Love it for my commute!
