We kick things off with a giggle, in a burning search for where is Shanice? We may not have answers but we got questions! James has some info about 90's pop group Ace of Base... and we'll just say you'll never listen to them the same again. James sounds like a party girl but not for the reasons you think- he was off drinking the empowerment kool-aid at the Tony Robbins conference Unleash the Power Within. But what's up with all these Nazi's on the rise from high school to video games- how can we stop this madness? Does Jaden Smith have a boyfriend- and is he being a TERRIBLE boyfriend? One of the wonder twins' face can be seen on ads, and billboards around New York State- get covered ya'll! In the main event James takes a look at the life of visionary Stan Lee, who recently passed away, who was an advocate for civil rights and equality as shown through his diverse comic book characters, empowering folks of all different backgrounds, genders, sexualities, and beyond all around the world. Continuing on the celebration train, Nnekay is here to tell us about how dope Sam Esmail is in his diversity in casting in Homecoming with Julia Roberts on Amazon Prime and Mr. Robot. Phew! It's a whole lot of episode so get ready for the fun!

Judge John Hodgman Episode 239: Textual Harassment

| 6 comments

Molly brings the case against her good friend Hector. Hector values her advice and often seeks her thoughts on matters professional or personal. Since they live far away from each other, he often texts or emails her to get in touch. Molly says his "digital poking" and consultation has gotten out of hand. Should Hector tone it down? Only one man can decide.

Thanks to Topher Lundell for this week's case name! If you want to name a future episode, like the Judge John Hodgman page on Facebook. We regularly put out a call for submissions.

You can also follow Judge John Hodgman on Twitter @Hodgman and Bailiff Jesse @JesseThorn.

WE NEED YOUR DISPUTES FOR SF SKETCHFEST! We'll be doling out justice in San Francisco on Friday, January 8th at Marines Memorial Theater! If you live in the SF Bay Area and have a beef with a friend, colleague or loved one, submit your case and you may be invited to present it live at our SF Sketchfest taping. You can also buy tickets to that show right here (but move quick, as they have sold out in previous years).
