OA132: The Thomas Show! Can He Serve on the Federal Bench? Why is His High School Crazy? & More!

Today’s episode is all about the budding legal expert co-host of this show, one Thomas Smith, Esq. soon-to-be of Thomas’s Second Chance Law Firm.

First, taking a cue from the hilarious failed nomination of Matthew Petersen to the federal bench, Andrew asks Thomas the same kinds of basic questions.  Is Thomas more qualified than Trump’s judicial nominees?  (The answer will not surprise you.)

In the main segment, the guys break down a threatened “God’s Not Dead 2”-style lawsuit at Thomas’s old high school, Bret Harte High.  Strap in for a bumpy ride, because this one is a roller coaster of crazy.

Finally, we end with an all-new Thomas Takes the Bar Exam Question #55 about damaging a boat.  Remember that you can play along with #TTTBE by retweeting our episode on Twitter or sharing it on Facebook along with your guess.  We’ll release the answer on next Tuesday’s episode along with our favorite entry!
