Not so long ago I began a podcast and it has been slowly gaining listens. I’m going to hit the 30,000 cumulative listens mark in the next week or so. And, I have listeners all over the world (Singapore, Portugal, New Zealand). I have no idea why. Maybe they think they can learn English by listening to a fast-talking American lawyer?

The cool thing is that a syndicated radio show in Australia asked me if they could download the show, edit it and play it as a regular feature down there. I kid you not.

This week’s podcast is about drinking and driving. Although it is not a major part of my practice, I have seen enough cases to where I can give you the thumbnail version. Don’t do it. It will cost you dearly in time, money and inconvenience. I know there are all kinds of moral arguments against it but I figure I’ll go with the practical argument here. Give it a listen and heed the advice.

And the pic at the top? A manufacturer plate from Illinois. Pray tell, what manufacturer could possibly have been building cars in Illinois in 1948?

This does not create an attorney-client relationship and is not meant to constitute legal advice, so the good news is we’re not billing you by the hour for reading this. The bad news is that you shouldn’t act upon any of the information without consulting a qualified professional attorney who will, probably, bill you by the hour.
