Episode 1: What Am Law?

In the inaugural episode, I welcome guest co-host T. Allison Jackson to lay down some ground rules about discussing legal history. We explore the State of Nature, then discuss how humankind transitioned from bands of lawless primates into civilized farmers with predictable patterns of custom. Then we talk about high-seas cannibalism for some reason. We survey the beginnings of ancient civilization in the Near East, and Mizz Jackson offers a compelling prophesy of the coming war between the city-states of Houston and Dallas. And I spend an awfully long time reading credits.
