Judge John Hodgman is a weekly podcast in which John Hodgman listens to real life disputes on issues such as: is chili a soup or a stew? is this room in my house called an “office” or a “den” or “a room full of junk.” when is it may someone else’s Chinese food be legally considered abandoned property? is it OK to rifle through the trash for prize coupons in a Canadian pizza parlor? is a machine gun a robot? Then Hodgman tells the disputants who is right and who is wrong.
