This time:

We welcome guest Matt Johnson of the Vocalogical Podcast! http://vocalogical.com

Matt brings the knowledge on how castrati singers became a thing (hint: religion + sexism).

Also, views on the legal news are all about the pending priest-on-child sex abuse lawsuits in Guam. So far, one priest has admitted to 20+ victims. Archbishop Anthony Apuron is steadfast in his denial of all wrongdoing, and the court has just dismissed defamation claims against him.

Mea culpa, I later realized I accidentally credited King Alfred the Great with the unification of England. Duhhh! It was his son, King Edward the Elder (not to be confused with King Edward the First)! Also, Edward's sister Aethelflaed, Lady of Mercia, probably did half the work at least.

This is the special supplemental episode for everyone who wants to know what a tort is and how we ended up with the civil lawsuit system we have now in America. The inspiration for this supplement is the "prima facie tort" count of comedian Aaron Glaser's lawsuit against comedian Jasmine Pierce. It's an odd duck. Come with me as we sort it out together.

People who get shoved onto the public stage by allegations of sexual assault will rush the hell off that stage as soon as possible, right? Well, not always. New York comedian Aaron Glaser has been accused by eight women, and he is making sure everyone knows it. Glaser previously sued comedian Jasmine Pierce for defamation, and he has just filed another lawsuit against the Upright Citizens Brigade.

TRUMP & MUELLER: WILL THEY OR WON'T THEY?

We start today with Trump's announcement that he "looks forward" to giving testimony under oath to Robert Mueller. What did he say, what did he not say, and should we hold our breath?

Going right to the other end of the spectrum, @EliteSkeptiC visits the show to discuss the importance of evidence-based schooling. After that, we type filthy things into Christian search engines like a couple of twelve year-olds.

This week I am taking refuge from the punishing northeast weather. I might actually be in a swimming pool right now. Probably not, but it is possible. 
 
Fortunately this financial episode is in the bank! (See what I did there?)
 
Investing expert, atheist activist, and cool dude Phil Ferguson is here to discuss lawsuit speculating; the Bitcoin bubble; college savings traps, and more. 
 
Patrons get an extended cut of the interview that is about 30 minutes longer.
 
Both Phil and I (and also Hugh Laurie) will be at the 2018 American Atheists Conference in Oklahoma City (https://www.atheists.org/convention2018/).
 
ALSO, if you act fast, you can snag a nearly free American Atheists membership that Phil will donate his own money towards: https://www.atheists.org/phil/

In this episode we brush up on voting rights law, because the voter suppressionists are gearing up for 2018 midterms and so must we!

This episode is a week and a half late, and I hope you never forgive me.
 
Get ready to hear all about the lawsuits filed over last month's terrorist massacres in Las Vegas and New York.
 
Also in legal news, the lack of rules about gun storage leads to hundreds of thousands of gun thefts a year... by criminals!
 
All that and Part One of what you will hopefully find to be a compelling profile on the President - the Russian one, Vladimir Putin.

Marijuana. Cannabis. Weed. Pot. Ganja. Where is it legal in the world today?
 
What are the policies for recreational marijuana inside the U.S., and how do the state laws reconcile with the federal Controlled Substances Act?
 
What changes do Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions have in store?
ALSO: Roy Moore has now been accused of sex crimes. What say you that we see to it he never wins a U.S. Senate seat? Cool?

It's the Habeas Humor election spectacular!!!
 
Laugh and learn about the upcoming elections for U.S. Senator from Alabama; Virginia Governor; New Jersey Governor, and more!
 
Correction, 5:20 pm 11/2/17: Chaffetz math error on my part. He served 1/8 of his third term, not 7/8. Doh 🤦🏻‍♀️
 
Note: if the Chris Christie clip is not playing correctly, it is apparently an iPhone problem. It also apparently corrects itself eventually. That's about all I know!

This episode starts off with my two cents on the documentary "One of Us" and its subject, Hasidic Jews.
 
After that you will get the details on Tuesday's Senate vote to repeal the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau rule on class-action lawsuits against banks.
 
Finally, sports betting laws and the pending US Supreme Court case by the state of New Jersey seeking to invalidate the federal ban.

Simon Beauvoir, cohost of the new feminist podcast Cherchez la Femme (@cherchezpodcast), tells the true story of his long court battle to get his three children vaccinated.

Simon grew up a member of a fundamentalist Christian sect and married into an anti-education, anti-vax, Quiverfull family. When Simon lost his religious faith, his marriage did not survive. The real conflict started, however, when Simon tried to bring medical science into his children's lives against the staunch objections of his estranged wife.

Trump's magnum opus wall, much like the rest of him, has nearly no chance of ever becoming erect. Nonetheless, we have begun paying for it (the wall and, in all likelihood, the boner efforts as well).
 
In international legal news, Hong Kong has taken a tiny step towards LGBT equality. Saudi Arabia has done the same for women... maybe.
 
(Oops I forgot the news and video links! I will add them tonight)

An (almost) hour's worth of dirt on big pharma: inflated vaccine prices result in dead children; misleading opioid marketing results in heroin addicts and dead adults; politicians and doctors are on the payroll.
 
... Oh, and the scum running the Morristown, New Jersey city government are giving people's tax money to churches.
