This week, our episode is live at Marines Memorial Theater from SF Sketchfest!
Brianne, a dog trainer, owns a small poodle named Shilo. She likes to take Shilo everywhere – the bus, classes at SF State, even restaurants. But this annoys her boyfriend, Zach, who thinks that Shilo's constant company is annoying, saying that it's representative of Brianne's attitude that the rules don't apply to her. Does Shilo need a shorter leash? Only Judge John Hodgman can decide.
We're also joined by past expert witness JOHN DARNIELLE of The Mountain Goats for a truly special musical set.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Slob
Katharine and Amy have been friends since college. They meet up at a local cafe to write together several times a week. Amy recently showed up for a writing session wearing an outfit that Katharine found unprofessional and unbecoming of Amy's image as a “writer.” Does Amy need to improve her image to be taken seriously?
Chad and Angela have been friends for years. Angela insists that with her level of access to Chad and knowledge of his habits, she could kill him and get away with it. Chad says she MIGHT be able to commit homicide, but she'd never get off scot-free. Who is right?
MANY, MANY THANKS again to
The team at the Greene Space for their help in making our live shows possible!
Jean Grae, MeLa Machinko, and Mr. Len!
And our live litigants, for bringing their problems before strangers!
