Today, we kick of two straight weeks of coverage on the future of the Fourth Amendment. We start our mini-series by speaking to the Director of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyer's Fourth Amendment Center Jumana Musa. Today's episode sets the stage for our upcoming conversations about facial recognition, reverse key word warrants, geofence warrants, and the general rise of big data policing. The ultimate question: Given the Supreme Court and lower Court decisions on Fourth Amendment Cases, what faith should we have that the legal profession is ready to usher the Fourth Amendment into the 21st century?

Mike Hulme is a Professor of Human Geography and head of the Department of Geography at the University of Cambridge. His research focuses on representations of climate change in history, culture, and media, and the ways in which climate change is deployed in public and political discourse. Mike's 2009 book, Why We Disagree About Climate Change, was chosen as one of The Economist's books of the year, and looks at how the idea of climate change has taken such a dominant position in modern politics. His most-recent book, Climate Change Isn't Everything: Liberating Climate Politics from Alarmism, addresses what he calls "climatism" — climate reductionism as ideology. In this episode, Meghan Murphy speaks with Mike about wildfires, "global warming," climate change activism, policy, hysteria, and more.

I find there to be a lot of value in actively managing your career. This is part of a series of editorials based on advice I've read from Raylene Yung (Facebook and Stripe) on your engineering career. In the last few years I've started to see a number of organizations find ways to build technical career growth paths that don't require someone to become a manager. A lot of technical people don't want to manage others, and I'd argue that making the best technical person the lead or manager isn't often the best decision. Those are two different skill sets and success in one doesn't predict success in the other. There are technical people who would like to move into management. If you are one of those people, then you ought to tackle building skills in that area just as you might tackle learning Power BI, SQL window functions, or any other skill.

Without exception, every single state Public Defender system is facing a shortage of Public Defenders. In many of our episodes, we've discussed innovative ways to try and bolster the number of people in law school interested in pursuing a career in Public Defense. Unfortunately as today's guest reveals, there is simply no way for law schools to solve the shortage of people. John Gross has spent the better part of the last two decades trying to come up with ways to solve the crisis in Public Defense. Without drastic systemic changes, and perhaps a string of case refusals, he is certain that we cannot simply recruit our way out of the shortage of Public Defenders.

Today, Hunter is joined by fellow podcaster David Moore. David is the host of the incredible Podcast, Another Not Guilty, that seeks to take a Public Defender twist on the true crime genre. As arguably the most popular genre of podcast, the true crime world often disregards the cases that result in a not guilty and are desperately lacking the perspective of the defense counsel who secure them. With ANG, David strives to give a platform for Public Defenders from around the country to showcase their victories in a manner that pokes fun at the comical stupidity our legal system.

Due to high demand, Angela is addressing the trending 3-part Netflix documentary "Escaping Twin Flames," exposing two "spiritual" leaders that recruit lost people desperate for love by promising prospects that joining the online university (costing thousands) guarantees that they will find their "one, true twin flame love" and join in "eternal harmonious union." In this stream, Angela discusses many issues with the documentary - namely, the fact that the series sets out to expose the cult itself, and has zero focus on the actual belief of twin flames. An ex-new ager, Angela fell for the deception of the "twin flame gospel" for a long time and can speak on behalf to how dangerous it is. Like everything else, the devil has perverted God's design. In this context, the perversion surrounds the Lord's design for man and woman/man and wife with this counterfeit idea of romance. Tune in to hear her testimony, learn more about the evil lie of "twin flames," and hear a biblical conclusion of the documentary. +++ Angela's Instagram: @angelamarieucci +++ Ways to Support the Show:

After speaking with Chief Public Defenders from most of the major metropolitan areas in California, Hunter turns today's episode to the smallest full time Public Defender Office in the state. Lael Kayfetz, Chief Public Defender in Siskiyou County California, joins the show to share her experience of leading an office in conservative, rural California. While not all the things that make her successful can easily be ported over to larger jurisdictions, there is a great many lessons to be learned from a leader who has successfully navigated this challenging political climate over an amazing 18-year career.

Durham College, a public college in Ontario, Canada, has disavowed the pro-Hamas comments of student Sahar Shehadeh. Her viral social media post shared how "very proud" of Hamas she was and how she "would love it" if they attacked Israel again. White House National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby blasted leftists for claiming that Israel was committing a “genocide” against Palestinians inside Gaza, noting that Hamas was the genocidal entity, not Israel. Former troops are suing the U.S. government for lost pay and benefits due to the Biden administration's military vaccine mandate, one of the lawyers who successfully brought down the Anthrax vaccine told Breitbart News. PayPal quietly closed a Gaza fundraising account benefiting an Israeli-designated terrorist organization after facing pressure from a legal watchdog group, while the credit card processor Stripe launched an internal investigation into the same campaign, the Washington Examiner has learned. Pro-Palestinian protesters descended on the Yale Bowl on Saturday, but a few counter-protesters were also on hand. Though Newsom lacks the power to end capital punishment in California, he could take executive action to commute the sentences of the roughly 700 condemned awaiting execution in in the state—a death row figure that dwarfs those of all other American states. The House Republicans are inching closer to filing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

In this light-hearted, fun conversation between two friends, Angela and Emmanuel talk about Christmas and all the controversy surrounding whether or not Christians ~should~ celebrate it… The two discuss their personal Holy Spirit conviction on Christmas as two former New Agers, what they are doing as parents, talk Santa, where we as believers draw the line of “paganism,” the core values of Christmas alongside the core values of Scripture, how this holiday is (quite obviously, radically, almost obnoxiously) different than celebrating Halloween, idolatry, the out of context Bible verse folks love to use in dispute of trees, and our job to - as the saying goes - keep the CHRIST in Christmas! Make a cup of hot cocoa and tune in. :) Don't be a grinch, either!
In this episode, Angela talks with ex-witch Julie Lopez. Julie comes from generational witchcraft, having experienced blood magic, suicide and demon-possession before Jesus radically saved her. For this conversation, Julie shares more of her testimony, exposes the truth that there is NO SUCH THING as "good" witchcraft, and reveals the powerful reality of the supernatural many Christians even deny. Angela and Julie, both having very different backgrounds with witchcraft, come together to encourage the church to wake up to the truth that the demonstrative power of God we see in the Bible IS STILL active, and that Satan can only use the dangerous sin of witchcraft as a way to pervert that which truly comes from the Lord. +++ Julie's Youtube channel: @julielopez2892 Julie's Instagram: @yuyi_23 Angela's Instagram: @angelamarieucci +++ Ways to Support the Show:
In this candid, vulnerable conversation, Angela shares for the first time the entire testimony of her eating disorder and how Jesus completely delivered her from that bondage. Angela struggled with food obsession and closet-eating a majority of her life, which led to her gaining nearly 300 lbs. After her grandma died in 2014, she joined a cult-like MLM that guided her to lose nearly half of that weight. Over the years, Angela's mission to be healthy unfortunately became an extremely unhealthy obsession, leading to body dysmorphia which led her to eventually become underweight, accompanied by a handful of physical ailments in her early-mid twenties. Throughout the entire process of her weight-loss journey, Angela developed binge-eating disorder, falling into a cycle of consuming nearly 3000 calories in one sitting, followed by self-hate and self-harm and intense restriction before the pattern would repeat itself. Angela tried everything. Therapy, macros, food scales, fitness coaches and more. But from 2015 - 2021, the eating disorder only continued to morph and evolve: from intense vanity, to intense self-loathing. When Angela got saved by Jesus in 2021, everything changed. Through new identity, sanctification and deliverance, she was finally set free of the bondage she had been captive to most of her life... Shortly after, she became pregnant with her first child. Tune in to hear the whole story. +++ Instagram: @angelamarieucci +++ Ways to Support the Show:
An unfortunate theme of the show is the reality that the Supreme Court is more than happy to close the doors of the courthouse to those who are factually or legally innocent. Preferring to uphold and support the concept of “finality” over truth, the Supreme Court once again found a way to keep a potentially innocent man from escaping an unjust sentence. Joining Hunter to discuss this and more is Alison Guernsey, Director of the University of Iowa College of Law Federal Criminal Defense Clinic, and Meredith Esser, Director of the University of Wyoming College of Law Defender Aid Clinic. As former Federal Public Defenders themselves, both hope to draw attention to the immense disparity between people's conception of justice and the “justice” available to those trapped in the Federal Criminal Legal System.

Our world and day to day lives have changed drastically in a very short period of time. Technology has gone from an addition to our lives to our way of life — most of us can't operate without it. And most of us have gone along willingly — enthusiastically even — with this technocultural revolution. But what are the consequences of melding man with machine? What have we handed over in trusting our devices with our lives? Can we get it back? In this episode, Meghan Murphy speaks with Joe Allen, author of Dark Aeon: Transhumanism and the War Against Humanity, about transhumanism, AI, and why we should reject technoculture in exchange for touching grass.

Learn the business economics - the metrics that matter - for your business. Matt Reynolds dives into macroeconomics and microeconomic or unit statistics, healthy rates, and how to calculate these statistics. You don't know the health of your business if you don't know these metrics. Business Economics: Know the Health of Your Business You cannot go off how you feel about your business to know if your business is doing well. The reality is real, and if you fail to know the economic realities of your business, the economic realities will confront you when abject failure slaps you in the face. It's okay, though. Even if the metrics are bad or trending in the wrong direction, have a true, clear picture helps you identify problems and where you need to put your energy and effort to turn things around. If your waist goes up month after month, you're getting unhealthier, whether you're measuring it or not. These metrics give you an objective measuring standard to assess your business' health. Business Economics: Metrics that Matter for Your Business Matt goes through each metric one-by-one. First, though, here are the metrics, organized into macroeconomic or business-level and microeconomic or unit-level. Macroeconomic (business-level) top line revenue cost of goods gross margin or gross profit operating expenses net profit Microeconomic (unit-level) churn rate (or retention rate) number of subscribers average ticket price lifetime value of client (LTV) per gross revenue per gross margin/profit customer acquisition cost (CAC) CAC:LTV ratio (as gross margin) monthly recurring revenue (MRR) Business Economics: Macroeconomic Metrics that Matter The first and easiest metric to calculate is top line revenue. This is the money that is coming in over a period of time, typically calculated monthly (and eventually quarterly and annually - though quarterly and annual numbers matter more for larger businesses). Whether you're looking at Stripe, ACH, the business bank account, this is simply calculating all the incoming money in a month. The cost of goods is the cost to produce the good itself. So, for producing a product, this is the cost of materials you purchase that go into the item and costs such as shipping. For a service business such as Barbell Logic, this looks like the pay to the 1099 contractor coaches per client. You calculate gross margin or gross profit by subtracting the cost of goods from top line revenue. Next, you need to identify operating expenses. These are things that are required for the business but not directly related to producing the individual service or good. This might be payroll for full-time employees, printer ink, paying for a new computer, squat racks, or taking a client to lunch. The last critical business-level metric to determine is your net profit. You calculate this by subtracting your operating expenses from your gross profit. This is truly how much money the business is making each month. If you're a one-man team, then you get paid from this. If you lose money, you don't get paid. As the owner or CEO, though, while you get paid last you also get fired last. Business Economics: Microeconomic Metrics that Matter Calculate your churn rate. This is the percentage of clients you lose each month. The retention rate is the opposite (100% - churn rate). Next note your number of subscribers. Matt says subscribers, because a customer who makes a one-time purchase (a one-time coaching session or purchases one widget) does not lead you to know what your recurring revenue is. You don't have recurring revenue in this situation. Next know your average ticket price. What are your subscribers paying each month on average. The number of subscribers multiplied by average ticked price equals your monthly recurring revenue (MRR). An important statistic to calculate is your lifetime value of client (LTV - especially at gross margin). The first thing you need to do is calculate the average customer lifespan. Divide 100 by the churn rate. So, for example, if you have 10% churn your average customer lifespan is 10 months. Below are more business economics metrics. MRR x average customer lifespan = LTV (at gross revenue) LTV (at gross revenue) x gross margin = LTV (at gross revenue) Calculate your customer acquisition cost (CAC) by adding together all efforts to acquire customers. This includes marketing, sales, ads, and content you produce to market (e.g. you create a weekly newsletter, podcast, or maintain a YouTube channel). The CAC:LTV ratio is important. 1:2 ratio is considered unhealthy or unsustainable. 1:3 is considered healthy. If your ratio is significantly less than 1:3 (e.g. 1:28) you should likely spend more money to acquire customers. These are the metrics that matter to your business.

When running a business, it should be expected that sometimes things will go south, and we'll have to put out fires. Sometimes these situations can be solved in a day with a phone call, but sometimes they can potentially end your business. That's what happened with our guest today when her Stripe account was hacked. Shannon Mattern is the founder of the Web Designer Academy where she teaches web designers how to create profitable, sustainable, freelance web design businesses. She also hosts the Profitable Web Designer Podcast where she shares insights and strategies for web design professionals. In this episode, Shannon talks about her recent experience and relates it to these business lessons: Be transparent and communicate with your clients In the middle of a challenge, look for rational and uninvolved perspectives There's more than one way to do things “There's multiple ways to handle any situation. Why not give myself the opportunity to find out all of them and then make a decision with way more information than just what's in my head or I can Google.” - Shannon Mattern Today's show highlights the importance of relationships and networks in the business world. Having the right people around you, especially during challenging times, can make a world of difference. But they can only help you to the extent that you're asking for help. If you don't share your challenges, the right people who can help you overcome them won't come. In the world of business, it's necessary to have the ability to navigate adversity with resilience, transparency, and with the support of your network.
