The Rule Book
In this independent Australian podcast, Melbourne-based lawyer James Milsom is interested in stories about how and why we stick to the letter of the law - or don't. We have been impressed by early episodes, including Episode 1, which introduced us to Kyle Magee, whose crusade against advertising has seen him hauled before court many times. Magee is stubborn and principled to an unusual degree - perhaps, even, to a slightly mad one - but there is much to admire in his rebellious spirit, and we found ourselves questioning our own passive acceptance of the commercial messages that bombard us. Milsom is a warm and observant reporter and this is a production of quality. One to watch.
