OA139: Cara Santa Maria & Why Two Dudes Named Iqbal and Twombly Are Hanging Out On Yodel Mountain

Today’s episode features a full-length interview with the one and only Cara Santa Maria!

First, though, we pore through the Fusion GPS testimony that was leaked by Sen. Dianne Feinstein and we look at a companion defamation lawsuit filed by one of Trump’s lawyers, Michael Cohen, against Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson.  Click here to read the Cohen Complaint.  Andrew also sneakily uses this as an excuse to teach us all about federal motions to dismiss and the Iqbal and Twombly cases.

Next, we talk to Cara, who talks skepticism, the law, and science education with us.

Finally, we end with the answer to Thomas and CaraTake the Bar Exam Question #58 about breach of contract for the hottest tech gadget of 1987, the Walk-n-Talkman.  Don’t forget to follow our Twitter feed (@Openargs) and like our Facebook Page so that you too can play along with #TTTBE!
