Andrew Torrez of the Opening Arguments podcast is here to talk trash about Donald Trump’s lawyers. He also talks about a dozen or so other topics including Pete Rose, Georgetown University, Corgis, and so much more. 

Patrons get this episode early AND get a special extended edition of the interview with Andrew (about half an hour of bonus material).

Don’t forget to vote for the winner of the Your Lawyer-Off!

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.

Bryce Blankenagel (Naked Mormonism, My Book of Mormon) is here to talk Mormons and (other) cults!
 
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.
