047 – Scooters + OSU Football = Tailgating Squared



Thinking about taking one of the new Lime or Bird scooters for a spin and want to know which is better? We tested both and give you a head-to-head comparison.

This weekend is a 3-day weekend, the start of OSU football – normally we are talking about red cups and tailgating – but now that these new scooters are now all over OSU’s campus and in the mix, we predict that this will create a “perfect storm” of increased mayhem.

Steve, Jeff and Jared talk reckless operation, bicycle law vs. scooter law, and good and bad scooter riders and why they remind us of the movie “Twister”.

Enjoy the holiday weekend and the start of football season! But if you end up needing help, call us:  614-224-6142

046 – Scooters of Prey: The Millennial Force



“Everybody run – it’s a flock of Birds!” And then someone throws a Lime in the mix and pandemonium breaks out!

Have you seen the scooters that are littering the city lately? Or perhaps you’ve witnessed – or been part of – one of the hair-raising stunts and near-collisions (and collisions)? The Bird and Lime scooters are sharing the roadways and sidewalks now in Columbus and many other cities – and throughout OSU’s campus. What are the legal and safety ramifications that surround this newer, Uber-ized, mostly unregulated mode of transportation?

Steve, Jeff and Jared cover everything from reckless operation, liability and what the problem is with trying to use a scooter to avoid a DUI – to DBDs (designated Bird drivers), bunny hopping, Bird-pooling, Bird-Littering –  just who are these battery-charging elves?! – and Bird vs. Lime: when in doubt, joust!

(Spoiler alert: there will be a show-and-tell in part 2, so stay tuned!)

 


045 – The Blinsky Chronicles -14- It’s A Wrap



The story of the chronicles have unfolded – so what’s next? Hint: a lot more fun stuff!

Years after the Nemesis, Agent X, a jaw-dropping verdict and the probation officer from hell, find out what’s been going on with Jared – and what’s next. Steve, Jeff and Jared talk losing fingers, “regular guy” clothes, the last Blockbuster, classic movies like Easy Money, Demolition Man, and Blade, making your own tools to fix things and how farm boy ingenuity helped the Americans win WWII, the Circle of Trust, OSU students and the new electric birds descending upon Columbus.

Steve, Jeff and Jared will be featuring many new people on Lawyer Talk with stories you won’t want to miss. And the guys share some of the fun new things they are planning, including hitting the streets  – maybe both literally and figuratively (you’ll soon see what we mean) – so stay tuned!

044 – The Blinsky Chronicles -13- The Pen and Probation – 30 Days in the Hole Part 2



Jared talks about the realities of federal prison and not having any control of your life, then what house arrest and probation were like. The guys talk strip searches, prison guards gone bad, when 30 days is too much and 5 years is not enough, doing weekly drops, when your probation officer is pulling for you to fail – and how to really disappoint him.

043 – The Blinsky Chronicles–12–The Federal Pen is the Federal Pen: 30 Days in the Hole



What is federal prison really like? What would you do if was pointed out to you on your first day that you are the only one there who is counting their time in days instead of years?

Hear a first-hand account from Jared about his time in the federal penitentiary as he talks with the guys about standing your ground, making friends, motorcycle club colors, translating restaurant skills into the realities of a prison kitchen job, “Not for human consumption” sardines as bedtime snacks, the recipe for mop-bucket apple pie, and the Fox News room at the Pen.
