Today we talk with a juror from a Los Angeles double murder trial where the defendant was a certain ill-tempered guy who appeared in movies (nope, not him - a different guy).
 
 
Our guest is Michael Schaffer, owner of Reason Real Estate and host of the upcoming podcast Reasonable Risk.
 
 
We discuss Michael's experience on the jury that convicted Lloyd Avery II, and we also highlight some of the serious problems with American criminal trials.

Wondering what was up with those seemingly random anti-sharia marches last Saturday? We get to the bottom of it. In the process, you will learn a ton about the anti-Muslim organization ACT for America; its leader Brigitte Gabriel; and the financial and political motives behind these marches.  
 
CORRECTION, 6/14/17, 4:00pm: According to Twitter, planning for the 6/10/17 March Against Sharia began (or at least went public) on about 4/20/17.

Did you know the bloody tale of the Mormon church's early years? Listen up and you will!
 
Is the LDS church a cult? What is a cult? Are dangerous cults beyond the reach of the law?
 
We also discuss convicted child rapist Warren Jeffs and the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

This episode dishes the dirt on "Dance Moms" star Abby Lee Miller's conviction and sentencing.

Strip club employment policies go under the microscope (and it's as gross as you think).

I personally thank all the wonderful people who have reviewed this show on iTunes!

Yep, I screwed up again. Sound issues in this episode caused me to put in a marathon thirteen-hour editing session. By 1:30 in the morning, I thought I was done but it turns out there were editing glitches. I fixed them, so enjoy.  :-)

On this episode, comedian Chris Duffy stops by to discuss legal rights of those wacky animals and their role in the justice system.

- Monkey photographers

- Trust fund dogs

- Informant parrots

- and more!

This episode has been edited from the version uploaded last night in order to fix a small editing glitch.

Additionally, I do apologize for the intermittent sound distortion throughout. I'd like to blame it on Zencastr, but it's probably due to something stupid I did during the interview portions.

This time on Habeas Humor, our special guest is Marissa McCool (website http://rismccool.com).

Marissa hosts the Inciting Incident podcast and three others. She recently published the non-fiction work "The PC Lie: How American Voters Decided I Don't Matter."

The Inciting Incident will have a live recording of its 100th episode on July 14, 2017 in Carlisle, PA. Tickets available at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/inciting-incident-podcasts-100th-ep-w-chris-kluwe-scathing-atheist-more-tickets-31754100369

On this episode,

- we recap the amazing weekend that was ReasonCon 3

- we laugh so we don't cry about discrimination against trans people in prison and schools

- and more!

This is the second episode of Habeas Humor!

If you didn't notice, this is coming out EARLIER than promised. You may have to wait a bit more than two weeks for episode 3, however, due to the fact that I will be on vacation. Look for that on or about March 10.

Today we start a new segment honoring standout cases in civil litigation history. If you are squeamish, you may not want to eat during this part.

Also, you get the story of my first and last prison deposition.
