TO OUR FRIENDS AND LISTENERS affected by hurricane Sandy: our thoughts and best wishes go out to you.
Judge Hodgman suggests that if you would like to assist with the relief effort for those affected by the storm, to consider a donation to the Red Cross.
A very special edition of Judge John Hodgman, recorded in front of a live audience in New York City at WNYC’s Jerome L. Greene Performance Space on October 21, 2012.
David brings the case against his wife Natily. The issue? LAUNDRY. When it’s clean, how should it be folded and prepared to put away? David sorts it into two big piles: his and hers. Natily prefers to have her clothing sorted by article. Judge Hodgman puts them both through the wringer!
The Right Not to Bare Arms
Peter and Barbara bring their case involving parenting and medicine to the court. Barbara recently struck a bargain with their daughter at the doctor’s office: if she would take her flu shot without crying, Mom and Dad would each get a flu shot, too. Peter wasn’t there to weigh in on the deal and refuses to honor it. Did Barbara have the right to make this bargain, and should Peter comply?
Plus: a session of “If It Pleases the Court” with musical performances from special guest Jonathan Coulton. Check out his album Artificial Heart now, and look for his Christmas album with John Roderick this winter.
