Listen to the Episode


From The Official Website:

In this week’s episode, Andrew sits down in the interviewer’s chair and talks with Chris Kristofco, another real lawyer and the lead editor at Title Town Sound Off, a Green Bay Packers fan site.

If you’ve been following the NFL’s investigation into alleged performance enhancing drugs use by several of its star players, you’ll enjoy hearing Chris’s take on whether this will be a “line in the sand” during upcoming CBA negotiations. Andrew also pins Chris down on some bold predictions, so if Clay Matthews is suspended on August 25th, you can say you heard it here first!.

We answer a listener question from Michael L. Rops, and inaugurate our new segment, “Closed Arguments” with a New York bar that really, really, really doesn’t want to be called out for discriminating on the basis of gender while it discriminates on the basis of gender.
