Leaving religion is the first step into a larger, better world. But it can also be a scary world. But never fear. That’s why we’re here. We’re your audio uncles—Uncle Mark, Uncle Dan, and Uncle Doug. Mark spent his early years under the miserable grind of Mormonism, and at age ten began planning his escape. Dan believed in the message of Mormonism fervently, all the way to his late teens but realized the sky was as empty of god’s presence as the countless pages of Mormon cannon he had searched to find him. Unlike Mark and Dan, Doug stuck with the Mormon faith into his early 20s, even serving a Mormon mission in central America, just to be 100% sure there wasn’t any truth to it. Spoiler alert, there wasn’t!
Lawyer, singer, comedian and oxford comma hater Charone has never been one to keep her mouth shut (no matter how many people keep asking). She also believes there is nothing so serious that it can't be laughed about. Unlike Fred Gwynne's courtroom in "My Cousin Vinny," this show is the forum to be cavalier. Whether it's Tomi Lahren suing Glenn Beck, Guamanian priests engaging in huggery tuggery with Boy Scouts, or the host trying to keep track of how many cats she has, everything gets made fun of on Habeas Humor. Well... everything except the holocaust, which is simply not an OK topic for jokes if we're going to get frank (the way the Nazis did). Oops, too soon?
This show pairs a real-life, Harvard-educated lawyer (Andrew) with an inquisitive host (Thomas). Every episode, Thomas and Andrew take on a popular legal topic and give you all the tools you need to understand the issue and win every argument you have on Facebook, with your Uncle Frank, or wherever someone is wrong on the Internet. Thomas and Andrew have tackled separation of church and state, Hillary Clinton's emails, Jill Stein's recounts, the Emoluments clause, overtime regulations, Roe v. Wade, the wacky "sovereign citizen" movement, and much, much more!
