The courtroom can be a battlefield over money, people’s rights, and even their lives. For some cases, the consequences can affect us long after the verdict is read. Based on extensive interviews and court transcripts, Wondery’s new podcast LEGAL WARS puts you inside the jury box of some of the most famous court cases in American history, including Hulk Hogan’s courtroom wrestling match with Gawker, the battle for free speech on the internet, and the Rodney King trial that set off the LA Riots. Host Hill Harper, actor and Harvard Law School graduate, brings you the drama, the larger-than-life characters, and the real-world impact these cases had on our society.

...those impersonations...

Great content. I have binged all of the episodes and look forward to the new podcasts. However, the impersonations ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. I don’t mean to shade; but, a little shade. The “British” accent killed me (Monkey Selfie Ep., I believe). I digress, I’m still going to listen tho.

Ugh

I really wanted to listen but the host...geez. Lame re-enactments...is he really playing every single part? I’d say don’t quit your day job but apparently he’s an actor. Disappointing :(
