Very enjoyable. Judge John and Jesse are a fabulous duo. Their cases are well chosen and entertaining. And the decisions are often very insightful and thoughtful, to a point beyond being merely lighthearted banter. I highly recommend this podcast.

The judge can always see through your BS so you better bring your A game if you are gonna go to court! Lovin me some justice smackdown and sometimes they are actually funny. RI = greatest NE state by volume...

Listening to this, you might think you're just listening to a great comedy podcast with excellent nerd culture references and witty, sarcastic banter. But then - bam! - the judge hits you with some warm feelings inside as he makes his verdict. His insightful decisions often encompass more than just the issue between the two litigants. He is able to find something deeper in their relationship and help them work on real issues.

Most consistently great podcast

I don't miss an episode. Judge John Hodgeman has great taste. The biggest surprise I had from first listening is how thoughtful and fair his judgements and closing remarks are. Jesse Thorn, if you're not familiar, is a solidly good dude. Bullseye is a great show as well. It's really cool to hear him blow a hip hop artists mind with his deep deep knowledge of hip hop history. They are both great examples of being an adult in our infantilized culture.

As someone who has spent his entire life in the State of Maine, but for a six-year foray into the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, I cannot imagine a better commentary on society than this documentary on New England life and pedantry masquerading as a comedy legal podcast.

Bailiff Jesse Thorn and Judge Hodgman kill it every single episode. They are the best and I hope they know it.

Just the best.

by triciaanne0904 on Mar 08, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

I was really late to the game on this one - I just started listening to it about two months ago. But since I heard about this podcast (thanks to another podcasts' recommendation), I've been listening to it pretty much nonstop. Judge Hodgman and Bailiff Jesse (and other guest bailiffs, including good-time summertime Bailiff Monte, whose pun game is on point, which generates a great deal of ire from the Judge) somehow manage to make each case delightfully fun, while taking seriously the root of the issues. And Jesse's laugh is just the greatest. Also, fun facts abound in this podcast. Like, did you know that ending a sentence with a preposition is totally okay? And a split infinitive - also okay. I don't remember in what episode they dropped these bombs, but I promise if you listen to the whole back catalog, you'll find it! Enjoy!

Internet justice at its finest

I've been listening to the Judge John Hodgman podcast for the past six years. It was my first podcast. I've learned a ridiculous amount of societal etiquette and insightful psychology through the years. The cases may sound similar after a while, but Judge Hodgman approaches them with wit, bluster, and wisdom unlike any other judge in fake Internet court. I highly recommend this podcast and anyone who advises you differently can shut their pie holes!

He's the best!

His Honor and Bailiff Jesse will tell you exactly how to resolve almost any dispute you may encounter, from how to properly deal with a bat-infested and nearly condemned house to the proper qualifications for yurt living. A charming, witty and wonderful broadcast that never fails to brighten my day.

by David Jonathan Ross on Feb 24, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

This is about as enjoyable as a podcast can get, as far as I am concerned. In addition the entertaining banter and laugh-out-loud humor, there is actually wisdom to be had! I find myself quoting its maxims ("people like what they like", etc.) in real-life situations, like, all the time. Like many of the best podcasts, it may take an episode or two to get in the groove of the show, but it is well worth it.

A good thing

I'm just a normal, non-creative dude, so don't expect from this review something witty. I relegate that to this show. This show... I've gone through its entire back catalogue, and every episode is not just witty and refreshing, but heartfelt. I've learned a lot about being a better human being while having a good laugh. This show is a good thing.

Consistently funny. The podcast is usually about some dumb argument between 2 people, but even so, Judge John's rulings always strike me as being very thoughtful and fair. He clearly spends time thinking about the reasoning behing his rulings. Also, lots of New England references, if that's your thing.
