You'd think we talked so long we ran out of air on this one. Chris Love is my guest and they helped me discuss Total Recall (1990) and discuss legal positivism and the laws under fascist states. Check out their podcast HOUNDS - at HOUNDScloud https://soundcloud.com/user-501031838Just to help you recall, Black Lives Matter!

Trigger Warning: Abuse (while discussing case law)On this weeks episode we discuss 2001: A Space Odyssey (1969), learn about Flag States, self defence laws, and mutiny. Mostly We make a lot of jokes and get distracted by my alleged feud with Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield.Check out Peter Watts' book Blindsight available here: https://www.rifters.com/real/Blindsight.htmPortion of Commander Chris Hadfield's cover of SPACE ODDITY. Writers. Bowie. Publisher. ESSEX MUSIC INTERNATIONAL, INC.Theme Song by Greg MelchinSpace Lawyers is a Copyright of Adam Norton and Greg Melchin 2017.Corrections: #1 I misspoke; culpable homicide that is not murder (did not intend the death) is manslaughter; Culpable homicide that is murder (intended death) is either second or first degree depending on the state or countries’ criminal laws. #2 Self defence by a computer should not be conflated with battered women's syndrome as there are obvious sociocultural and legal differences; I apologize for trivializing that reality. 
On this episode, the original dysfunctional duo Adam and Greg, cover Tuvix (May 6, 1996) and whether Captain Janeway would be up for a court-martial when she extra-judicially killed the new being Tuvix that has all the intelligence of Tuvok and all the charm that Neelix lacked.

Our first episode is finally available. The sound quality varies throughout as part of the episode was deleted so we had to rerecord some of it. This is our episode about the Prime Directive and the Star Trek TNG episode: Justice. Spoiler Alert: It was not a good episode of television, but filled with legal dilemmas for Adam and Greg. These were some cases alluded to in our show: Flipping a coin cases: http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2000-04-25/news/0004260162_1_toss-coin-murder-or-manslaughter This one is from 1785: https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/10/should-racism-in-the-jury-room-lead-to-a-new-trial/502796/ All music is public domain or we have permission to use.
