New Podcast, « Legally Insane » Dives Into Crazy Legal History

A+ A- A
 — Available THIS WEEK on iTunes — the new weekly podcast from Cascade Media — Legally Insane. Legally Insane is a deep and comedic dive into some of the craziest and darkest parts of the legal history of this great country. It’s like Mad Libs for legal history!
The podcast will cover a wide range of topics such as Divorce Law, the Blue Laws, Eminent Domain, Stand Your Ground Laws, The Pardon Power, Diplomatic Immunity, Baseball’s Reserve Clause, and many more cases and events that deserve deeper exploration. Each week will explore a new topic but all share one thing in common, they are « legally insane. »
Hosts, Matt Ritter and Tony Sam, will come at the topic from two wildly different perspectives. Matt is a recovering Big Law attorney, turned comedian, with a passion for legal history. Tony has no legal background whatsoever, except for a few minor brushes with the law. However, both love comedy and the idea of examining the craziness of American law.
« Imagining sitting around a bar while two of your funniest friends riff on law, with the benefit of actually learning something. » – Matt Ritter
The Legally Insane podcast can be found on iTunes and all podcast directories. Subscribe today!
