The Mythcreant Podcast

That means it’s time to look at some of the most famous and/or challenging legal situations in speculative fiction and see how they hold up. Have you ever wanted to know if Baltar really was guilty of treason or if the UN really has the authority to enforce the Sokovia Accords? Listen and find out!
