Boozy’s Legal Funhouse – Episode 4: Legal Ethics and Other Fictions

We’re almost done with the backlog episodes! In this Fourth Episode of Boozy’s Legal Funhouse, I was joined by a prosecutor (Scuff N. Dings) and in house counsel (Buddy Goodboy, Esq.) for a discussion of legal ethics in our own particular fields of practice, as well as answering questions from the audience about legal ethics in general!

Plus we spent a good amount of time talking about how lawyers have trouble keeping it in their pants, apparently, in discussing the news.

Recorded 2/8/2021

WARNING: This is the penultimate backlog episode, and therefore still has Twitch notifications on (Did you know the Legal Funhouse is recorded live online every Monday at 7 PM Eastern on my Twitch channel? It is!). One notification in particular is…interesting. I know it’s interesting. Just…just bear with me, okay? I’ll be turning the audio notifications off in the future but for the sake of hilarity it stays in the picture for now.

Remember, the beatings will continue until someone pays me to shill socks as a subscription service.

New episodes will be uploaded on Wednesday mornings at 9:00 a.m. starting this week!

Boozy’s Legal Funhouse- Episode 3, Bankruptcy or Something Like It

In the absence of a guest, this week in the backlog was a bombersight discussion of bankruptcy law as it currently exists in the United States with a dash of legal news, questions, and some disturbing notification sounds from the live stream!

This episode was recorded on 2/1/2021.

Boozy’s Legal Funhouse streams on Twitch every Monday at 7 PM Eastern, with the episodes available generally on Wednesday mornings – unless, like right now, I’m releasing backlog to get my happy ass all caught up!

Boozy’s Legal Funhouse – Episode 2

As we catch up on backlog, here’s the second episode of Boozy’s Legal Funhouse, a weekly stream/podcast where we discuss legal news and issues, interview attorneys, and generally jackass around with a law degree!

This episode was recorded 1/24/2021

Our guest this week was an old friend and former public defender who joined me for a discussion of criminal law and criminal defense, answering questions from Patreon supporters. Also, he did the entire interview wearing a giant, unblinking dog head which was kind of unsettling.

Lawyers are weird, folks.

ADDITIONAL NEWS:

We are now available on Spotify and Apple Podcasts! So there you go!

Boozy Goes Radio

Hey folks.

So I said I was bringing things back this year, and we’re starting that with Boozy’s Legal Funhouse, a podcast of a live stream and…you know what? Here’s the deal. I’m busy, and I’m trying, and what the world REALLY needs is another self-important lawyer with a microphone talking about things.

The podcast, after the five backlogged episodes go up, will be live every Wednesday on here, on Spotify, and hopefully on Apple once they, you know, make sure I’m not an alien or whatever the hell it is they do.

You can find the first episode below, recorded last year as part of a livestream discussion of landmark LGBTQ+ SCOTUS cases!

We’re Back – An Empty Promise’s Story

Hello and how the hell are you fine folk? Wow. It’s been a while since the last time I, the Boozy Barrister, attempted to restart this site up to talk about law, lawyering, legal things, etc. etc. etc. To the extent that, as I write the words “The site is coming back on February 1, 2021” each and every one of you are staring at the screen and sighing heavily with the belief that this is yet another empty promise. And you know what?

You may be right. But unlike the prior times I’ve sworn like a drug addict giving up the needle that this is the time it sticks, I’m trying my damndest this time. I mean that in the way that I’m not going to start making pie-in-the-sky promises about updating three times a week or anything like that. Because I know I won’t. As the ancient Greeks used to say: “Know thyself,” and MYself is prone to getting distracted, down, depressed, sluggish, and intensely focused on case work and therefore unable to dedicate the time I had back when my office was staffed up to the hilt to writing my thoughts down on these things.

But I’m gonna try, and I’m gonna try by saying that from here on out you can expect a post from me EVERY MONDAY unless I advise you well in advance. A little missive from the drunken whiskey glass/sentient comedian badger/overworked lawyer to start the week off. Always written on a Sunday night, in fact, so I can make sure it actually is done before I wrap myself in bed and dream about all the money I’ll never make hacking away at nickel and dime lawsuits. Because, to be honest, I miss it. And by setting myself ONE comprehensive post a week at the least, I can dedicate several days to writing it.

So here’s hoping it works.

Other things that are going on?

  • Monday Nights at 7 PM Eastern I’ll be over on Twitch streaming a roundup of whatever legal matter has caught my attention for an hour with a show I’m calling “Boozy’s Legal Funhouse.” You’ll be able to tune in at 7 PM Eastern HERE.
  • Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday I’ll be over at that same Twitch stream in my screaming persona of a giant badger man doing video games for an hour at the same time and generally chatting.
  • I’m sitting down this year to actually try and finally write “Boozy’s Guide to Law for Dipshits,” a book that I’d love to actually get done.

All that said and done, if you’re still here I want to thank you for reading through all of this. I’ll be back again next week. So long as I don’t get distracted.

Peace.
