There are many folks who publish books that really shouldn’t. Our next guest, David Lat, is not one of them.

David and Mirriam talk about what makes gossip interesting, law clerking, Chris Christie (you’ll be surprised), and David’s coming of age as a human and a lawyer. Being the journalist that he is, he tried do some interviewing of me! Nice try.

David got his early blogging experience dishing about the gossip and inside scoop of the courthouse. He is now the respected founder and managing editor of In addition to being a founder of something, he is also the author of “Supreme Ambitions.” If you have even 1% legal nerd in you, this is a must read. You can purchase it here. You can read the NYT review of the book here.
