Denver, CO – On January 31, the popular blog Popehat, along with Legal Talk Network, launch their new First Amendment podcast entitled Make No Law. In this monthly podcast, host Ken White will bring history to life by weaving together real cases, voice acting, real accounts from real people, and all with a pinch of theatrics in this story telling narrative about our freedom of speech. Listeners will get to hear for themselves actual audio snippets of Supreme Court Justices working through our country’s most pivotal First Amendment cases.
“My goal is a podcast that’s interesting, informative, and accessible to non-lawyers and lawyers alike,” said Ken White about the podcast.
Ken and the Popehat blog already have a significant audience, including 98,000 Twitter followers. “We’re really excited to be working with Ken. He has built a large following and has a keen sense of what topics are important,” said Adam Camras, CEO of Lawgical, the company behind Legal Talk Network. “I think his fans are really going to enjoy the opportunity to engage in a new way with this show.”
