Intro/Theme music: “Noise in my Head” by Clarknova
Outro music: “Splitzkrein” by Portal

Michael is my longest running current friend. We met a little over a decade ago and bonded over a mutual interest in Battletech/MechWarrior.

We have always had interesting discussions on a variety of subjects as we both read alot, and Michael was one of the only two guests on the original iteration of this podcast.

Michael went to University and earned an Honours Degree in Criminology, Justice and Policy Studies. We talk about what criminology is, the direction taken in regards to crime management by the Canadian Government, courtrooms, the difference between Canadian and American courts, learning styles and left-handedness (Michael is left-handed, I’ve adapted to be partially so due to issues with my right arm),
