"enjoy the deep dives into law. thomas takes the bar exam is hilarious, a non-lawyer is getting about 57% of the questions correct. Impressive that its so easy or that he is so talented, you decide. The heavy liberal bent exists."

"I thoroughly enjoy this podcast. The banter between Andrew and Thomas is fun and keeps a subject many would find boring (the law) and keeps it entertaining. They cover very current events and Andrew thoroughly explains the law and how it applies. The bonus content is great."
