“JUDGE JOHN HODGMAN, what do you look for when you choose which disputes you will settle in a BINDING, QUASI-LEGAL MANNER ON A PODCAST?”

  • The dispute should exist in the real world; it should not be hypothetical. We do welcome occasional philosophical disputes as they interest the Judge.
  • The court does not merely seek to tell you that you are WRONG. It also wishes to dispense JUSTICE, so please note whether you desire the Judge to issue an INJUNCTION, an ORDER, or award DAMAGES.

Please note! Cases are pre-screened and scheduled to record. You may receive an unscheduled phone call from someone on the JJHo Production Team in order to screen your dispute.

If you have questions about the submission process, please feel free to email us at hodgman AT maximumfun DOT org.
