About Opening Arguments

Opening Arguments is the show that 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 the Stormy Daniels settlement agreement with Donald Trump, 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!

It's law.  It's politics.  It's fun.  We don't tell you what to think, we just set up the Opening Arguments.
