Podcast Episode 2: All Over But the Shouting

This week, I discuss my take on an LA Times article regarding the class action lawsuits that disgruntled grads have filed against a number of law schools.  I apologize for some indelicate language I used, but I was a bit worked up.  Also included is part 1 of my interview with "Howard," a former law school classmate of mine.  He recently transitioned to a non-legal position, and in the first part of the interview we discuss why he went
to law school, and what advice he gives to prospective law students these days.  Finally, I read an excerpt from the introduction to Will Meyerhofer's book, Way Worse Than Being a Dentist: The Lawyer's Quest for Meaning, which is a collection of his "In-House Counseling" columns from  Meyerhofer brings a unique and humorous voice to the dysfunctional legal industry.  He went to law school for the same silly reasons we all did; he was traumatized by his experience in Big Law; and now he gets to help people who took the same dreadful path he did.  Enjoy!

  1. That was great! Still loving your blog. Keep up the great work! I feel like we have so much in common I almost wish we could meet for a coffee-lol!! My husband's also happy I've found your blog-it's definitely helped keep me sane and less miserable to be around as of late. I'll stay posted.

    1. Thank you so much for reading and for listening! I'm so happy someone can relate to my story. If you're ever in California, let me know and I'll buy you that coffee. :)

  2. ... He's just a bang beat, bell ringing, Big haul, great go, neck-or-nothing, rip roarin', every time a bull's eye salesman, that Professor Harold Hill, Harold Hill...

    whaddaya talk, whaddaya talk, whaddaya talk, whaddaya talk?

    He's a law professor

    He's a what? He's a what?

    He's a law professor and he sells clarinets to the kids in
    the town with the big trombones and the rat-a-tat drums, big
    brass bass, big brass bass, and the piccolo, the piccolo with
    uniforms, too with a shiny gold braid on the coat and a big
    red stripe runnin'...

  3. Beautiful work. I am going to promote this on my blog. Thank you.

    1. Thanks so much, Nando! So far podcasting has been a lot of fun. I hope it reaches enough prospective law students to make a difference.
