Hello, is this thing on? Check one, check two...testing, testing. We're good? Alright alright alright... It's been 100 days between shows. Thought maybe the world might be calmer if we waited a bit, but no such luck! We are, however, very glad to be... more

Barring an unlikely spate of more than a dozen episodes happening over the next week, it sure looks like Steve has won his bet with Bobby, for this marks the 16th episode of 2023.  Ouch, that’s not even *close* to the 30-show target!  But tune in any... more

Two months between episodes? Looks like someone will be buying Steve a dinner at the conclusion of 2023 (barring a pivot to posting new episodes every day). As for what is on tap in episode 243: * Israel and Gaza: a review of key international law ... more

Sorry about accidentally taking the whole month off, but we’re back with a classic: tune in for the 9/11 case warm-up, and stick around for 45 minutes of wrangling over the PCLOB Report on Section 702!  And, yes, frivolity, always frivolity (wherein ... more

    Absolutely marvelous to have you guys back! And I am so so relieved that you I’m going to continue it. It’ll probably be more regular when you have to schedule it between Texas and the East Coast.! Thanks guys, Louise and San Diego

  • Love— wish they did more

    I really appreciate how thorough and thoughtful their discussions are, I just wish they did more episodes. Maybe more like 2 a month rather than about 1.

  • Really enjoy but…

    I really enjoy the deep dives these guys take on the National Security law issues and their companionable “back and forth” and off topic chats BUT the constant verbal tics “like” “you know” drive me nuts. For law professors I find it surprising they still talk like that. Today they gave some nice advice to first year law students: I am an attorney and my advice to the students would be to purge your speech of those crutch words—- in my opinion it makes you a less effective communicator.

  • Painful

    I’ve tried to listen to these two, and even subscribed for a while, because I’m interested in the subject matter. But their off topic ramblings make it too painful. Would not recommend.
