018 – Parking Lot Wars



What are the rules – legal and social –  when it’s private property?

Steve and Jeff share true stories and the view from the downtown Columbus/Brewery District parking hotspot, 511 S. High.  We learn fun facts about loitering, trespassing, “the cigarette debacle”,  the fact that Steve is now “the Man”, and that Jeff is some kind of movie savant and can quote Willy Wonka by heart. One of the first episodes that we recorded, but are just releasing now, hope you enjoy.

 


017 – The Blinsky Chronicles–Are You Ready?…It’s Coming May 1



We’re gonna make you laugh. We’re gonna make you cry. We’re gonna make you wonder how it could all be true. But it is.

Tune in May 1 for an unprecedented, unedited, and uncensored tale of American life, adversity and redemption.

We take you along for the ride as we dive into the deep end of one man’s life. He’s a central Ohio food icon known by many, but not many know the rest of his story – until now. Come along with us for this unbelievable journey and first-hand account. Starting on May 1st, you won’t believe your ears – and you won’t be able to pull away.


016 – Looking For Likes In All The Wrong Places And Other Online Woes



What are we really doing when we post to social media?

Steve and Jeff talk Facebook feedback loops and little hits of happiness, teenagers and the perceived social norms that can get them into legal trouble, Chef Jeff’s Instagram habit, how “Dear Diary” has become “Dear World”, crossing the legal line online, and going off the grid – or maybe just “no-screen Sundays”.


015 – Taxes And The Common Joe Pt. 2



Who is this chick named RITA who keeps sending me letters?

In part 2, Glenn Harper of Harper & Company CPA Plus does a deeper dive with Steve and Jeff about how individuals, entrepreneurs and small businesses can stay on the right side of the law when it comes to their state, local and federal taxes – and strategies for how to get things back on track when needed.


014 – Taxes And The Common Joe Pt. 1



It’s a Tax Season bonus edition!

Steve and Jeff talk with Glenn Harper of Harper & Company CPA Plus about what small businesses should do to plan ahead and stay on the right of the law with the I.R.S..


013 – DUI 360 #3 – First, Kill All The Lawyers (Unless You Have A DUI)



What do William Shakespeare and drunk driving law have in common?

Steve and Jeff talk occupational driving privileges, LDPs, Ohio’s 3-day OVI intervention vacation or the klink, bedbugs and the law, probation and the county variance, it’s all about the judges, arraignments, fines and court costs, time spent and mandatory minimums.


012 – DUI 360 #2b — The Big Question –To Blow Or Not To Blow–License Suspensions And Other Consequences



In part one of this DUI 360 episode we discussed why if you don’t know French, and you’re given the choice to not take the French test, then maybe don’t take that test. As in: no way, André..

In part two, Steve and Jeff reveal more about the two ways you can be charged with DUI (OVI), the two types of license suspensions, double agents for the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, knuckling up and ignoring the 90 day shiny spoon and waiting for the minnow, and winner, winner chicken dinner: here’s your administrative license suspension.

 

 


011 – Fighting Outside the Ring–Conor McGregor, the Russians and Crime-Related Over-Indulgence



Steve and Jeff discuss MMA fighter Conor McGregor’s freak-out revenge attack against the Russians at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center last night – “hot blood” or premeditated felony assault? And is it the same focus and intensity that drives you and makes you great at something, that also gets you in trouble?

The guys discuss defending celebrities who get in trouble with the law, trespassing, criminal damaging, felony assault and bar fights, Jeff’s man-crush on Conor McGregor, McGregor’s animal walk and ability to warp time in the ring, Joe Rogan and MMA, Tiger Woods, golf, Russians and petite Estonians,  the Mickey referral, toothbrush whittling, and writing the check – until you can’t.

 


010 – DUI 360 #2a – The Big Question – To Blow Or Not To Blow



To blow, or not to blow? That is the question…that Steve and Jeff answer in this first of a 2-part DUI 360 episode. And it’s probably the most common question that they have received from hundreds of people over the years who have had a few drinks and have later been pulled over.

What a breath test has in common with a high school French test, what a police officer’s primary goal is when they suspect someone of drinking and driving, and recent changes in DUI/OVI laws: why they occurred and how they affect the answer and the outcome.

First of 2 episodes.
