    Which Podcasts Fuel Your Listening Pleasure?

    Hey! Didn't realize there was a podcast area until just now. I'm a true crime junkie. My favorite podcasts..in order 1. In the Dark - season 2. It's really rage inducing, but it's entertaining, insightful and important. For everyone to listen to. Also, case is under SCOTUS review right now so it's relevant 2. Dirty John 3. Doctor Death 4. Once Upon A Crime 5. Broken Hart's 6. The Drop Out 7. Swindled 8. Female Criminals 9. American Scandal 10. Slow Burn I'm listening to bear Brook now and it seems pretty good
  2. I totally agree with the first paragraph. As for the second, so she has to "work" 18 hours a week minimum or she has to study a minimum of 18 hours a week?

    The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley

    Real talk though? The primary reason I love all these documentaries, books, podcasts and movies is because I find the story fascinating. But I also love that they keep the story in the spotlight so Holmes can't simply walk away from her shit circus and live a carefree and happy life while she messed up life for so many others, particularly Tyler Schultz, who I feel should be paid back the 400k his family spent in legal fees.
  4. She isn't going to get chemirinsky, but I'm sure there are law professors who want to be on TV. But there is a reason law school takes years.....you have to read A LOT, and then you should have a professor to help you put it all together so that you have a comprehensive understanding of a subject. And you have to do the same for a variety of subjects. I can't see a way where you can be successful without putting in a lot of work. Criminal law is generally not the hardest subject because there are clear elements and rules. And we've a at least had some exposure to criminal law on TV. But just wait until she gets to real property and future interests, or evidence, or California specific evidence, or civil procedure or California specific civil procedure......good luck with that!
  5. I'm not an education snob by any means, but.... yikes. There are some cases of jailhouse lawyers who are very competent and maybe have a HS degree or less, but those guys are like hidden geniuses who never had a chance in life.
  6. I suppose, but she would have to read the cases and the case law books. She would have to write the exams, because that's how you learn how to write and reason and do legal analysis. If she ever wants to actually work in a court she has to learn the legal writing, how to synthesize rules, how to write facts, how to acknowledge law the counters her position but reason around it. It's work, and to me, it's best and easiest done in the classroom setting, and no professor would be behaving ethically if they were to "pass" her without her putting in the work.
  7. Agree that you don't need to be exceptionally intelligent to matriculate through law school or even to pass the California bar. But there is a reason apprenticeship candidates who sit for the California bar have a 2.8% pass rate. It's because at the very least accredited law schools weed out as many people as they can who probably can't pass the california bar exam. And honestly, the bar exam has very little to do with the actual practice of law. It just doesn't. The reasoning skills should be the same, but writing a brief or a decision and writing a bar exam essay are completely different. You have to have memorized legal concepts and theories and be able to apply them. You're probably not going to have to have memorized areas of law and apply them in day to day practice. Additionally the California bar, between essays and MBEs can test broad concepts and minutia in like 12 subjects I believe. You're not going to learn ALL subjects by apprenticing for a practice that likely specializes in a few areas of law. If she really wants to practice law, this is a terrible way to do it. At least have enough respect for the profession to attend law school and put in the work.

    Leaving Neverland

    This is why I refuse to even engage with apologists. It would make me stabby and put me at risk for the rage stroke I'm trying to avoid. So a grown man is having private "sleepovers" with your son, and buying you a rolls Royce and a house and this situation doesn't look like exactly what it is? My goodness, wolves take better care of their young. MJ is to blame for his actions, but these parents were willfully ignorant to the point of being complicit. You all could have bought a smaller house and driven a used Honda, but I guess a fancy house and a rolls Royce was what your son's innocence was worth.

    Eric & Leida: Put It In Proper

    Ha ha, I know I do. You'll pry my nineties lingo from my cold, dead hands! So it could be me and you against the world 😉

    Eric & Leida: Put It In Proper

    Well, it's good to know about that mentality. I'm never on social media and I'm disappointed to hear that rather than experience something, sometimes people really think it's important for others to think they experienced something.

    Eric & Leida: Put It In Proper

    I don't understand this at all. Whenever I've been purse shopping I'll look in the mirror to make sure I look right. To me, the best part of the handbag is that it ties my look together and it gives me a place to put my Lifesavers and my wallet. I could care less if anyone knows I bought it at the MK store or at the Macy's or at Marshall's. Also, there is nothing classy about getting a fancy purse from a deadbeat dad.
