The Law Ep 26, Miranda v Arizona (1966)

The-Law-Cover.jpg

The US Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision, makes a great argument against police using deception, fraud, coercion and trickery in obtaining criminal confessions and creates the now famous Miranda warnings with which we are all familiar. Unfortunately, there is no constitutional authority for the SCOTUS to impose such a policy.

Libertarian Shit-talking With Chris Spangle: Sounds Like Liberty: Episode 39

SLL-039.jpg

In Sounds Like Liberty: Episode 39. Hi folks. I’m (Lizzie) taking over writing these things, so dig these value packed new show notes. In today’s episode we talked with the wonderful Mr. Chris Spangle of We Are Libertarians fame. We go through the Libertarian gossip mill and of course culture. It always comes back to culture doesn’t it?

To begin today we examine that classic hippy tune People Got to be free by The Rascals. But do people want to be free? http://bit.ly/2ClcOLn

In I Heard This Happened: Nicky brings to the table some pop-rock gold in the form of the record Topiary by LA artist Alex Jules. The songs might remind you of classic Billy Joel. In fact if you couldn’t discern the modern recording techniques you might assume it was straight from the 70’s. There is something almost like Styx or Supertramp in Alex’s tenor and he has moments of swagger like early Ben Folds Five. The record came out on Match 8th and you can check it out here: http://alexjules.bandcamp.com/album/topiary

I have the record Anchors & Elephants by vocalist Jennah Bell. I haven’t recommended a singer-songwriter record in a while. This one is far more interesting than most others. There is a rambling in the lyrics that might remind you of artists like Erykah Badu or Bob Dylan. I can’t find fault in Ms. Bell’s vocals. At times they remind me of Kimbra or Cobie Calit and I appreciate the way she plays with the melody in her phrasing. There are a lot of interesting choices represented in this record. It deserves more attention than it has gotten so far. https://jennahbell.bandcamp.com/album/anchors-elephants

My Cousin Vinny - The Last Nighters - Episode 62

1360x908-LN_My_Cousin_Vinny.jpg

We are joined by a yout from the Liberty Weekly Podcast to discuss a lawyer-themed movie, My Cousin Vinny. That's right, Patrick MacFarlane is joining us to discuss another movie based on lawyering, and it should be a great time as we explore this Joe Pesci and Marisa Tomei flick that still holds up to this day.

Two naive youts traveling from New York City to college in California drive through Alabama and are erroneously arrested, and accused of homicide. Luckily, one of them has a cousin who's an attorney - Vincent Gambini, a previous auto repairman from Brooklyn who just passed his bar exam after his 6th attempt. Vinny's never been in court - or in Alabama - and when he lands with his leather-clad fashionista sweetheart, to attempt his first case, hilarity ensues - for him and the deep South!

Join us next week for our St. Patrick’s Day episode where we analyze a Chinese movie about Japanese occupation with a guy from Texas, the Anarchist Luke Tatum of the Culture of Peace Podcast.
