It’s been too long since I’ve done a solo episode. For this one, I hop on the mic for the first installment in a new series focusing on trial by jury. Using Lysander Spooner’s “Trial by Jury” as a framework, this series will explore the simple fact that juries have the ancient right to judge both the facts and the justice of the laws. This first episode introduces the fundamental importance of that fact.

  1. The market for liberty by Morris and Linda Tannehill also has an interesting take on the presence of juries in a stateless society.
