The Wigs is a monthly podcast exploring and interrogating contemporary legal issues in and out of the court room. The first and only podcast (so far) featuring practising barristers talking shop. Join Emmanuel Kerkyasharian, Felicity Graham, Stephen Lawrence and Jim Minns as they deep dive into the scenarios and outcomes that make up our legal system.
 
Two friends, one bottle and plenty of things to wig out about. Sit down, enjoy a glass of your favorite wice and join Paul Croce and Lindsay Harbert as they dish on what's flipping their wigs. Each week, they'll talk all things pop culture, tell you who's the problem, and chase down a tangent whenever a sparkly one comes along.

In this episode the wigs are back into some complex black letter law.

The Wigs put prosecutorial fairness under the microscope. First up is a discussion of a new decision of the NSW Supreme Court in Bradley v Senior Constable Chilby, where a defendant in local court proceedings demanded disclosure of details of his accuser's history of violence, drug use and dishonesty in a case where self-defence loomed large. Secon…
 
The Wigs discuss the recent US Supreme Court case of Bostock v Clayton County where a US man was fired for "conduct unbecoming a county employee". Why? He joined a gay softball team. He took the county on and ended up transforming US discrimination law. To add some Australian context the Wigs also interview Assoc Professor Wayne Morgan who talks ab…
 
The Wigs are back! Kicking off season 2 with the inside story of the NSW Police attempt to ban the recent Black Lives Matter protest in Sydney.

Hi, Wigs! Staying home? Good, us too. Hear another episode in less than a week - see, we're helping keep you sane. Ish. This week we attempt to laugh at what this pandemic is doing to us, stomp a mudhole in Natalie Maines' ex-husband's face, ruin Indiana Jones and spoil the hell out of Love is Blind (literally - skip 54:00 - 1:06:40) if you haven't…
 
I think we are! Did absence make the heart grow fonder? Because WE. MISSED. YOU. No really, we're keeping our social distance because that is responsible and appropriate but boy, are we sending the love. And our first new episode in over two months (gulp)! Fear not, with all this staying home, we're trying to get back to the old days of, wait for i…
 
The Wigs discuss the latest from the monumental High Court decision in Love v Cth (why Aboriginal non-citizens can’t be deported). Plus an in depth interview with Sydney Morning Herald court reporter Michaela Whitbourn and the curious story of Alfred Piddington, Australia’s shortest serving High Court justice.

Secondly the decision of NSW v Robinson [2019] in which the high court considered whether it is lawful for police to arrest someone for questioning and w…
 
Can you believe it, Wigs? We made it through 2019, relatively unscathed! We're not promising anything for 2020. We know, we know... we gave up popping corks a couple episodes ago but when it comes to wrapping up the year, we had to share our rants one last time. There's also a whole lot of Wigs to flip in the world of books, TV, music and movies so…
 
The Wigs discuss the proposal for mandatory blood testing of persons charged with assault police and similar offences, the legal issues posed by the explosion in facial recognition technology and the Julian Assange case and whether the indictment threatens free speech and the right to publish. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out informati…
 
Hi Wigs! This week, we're not popping corks! We want to keep things light, fun and positive going into this holiday season, so we bring you our top five activities that don't involve Black Friday. Along with some second opinions and - of course - we flip our wigs, because we'll always have things to flip our wigs about.…
 
The Wigs discuss the legal issues presented by pill testing at music festivals, the UK decision of Miller (Boris Johnson's unlawful prorogation of parliament) and lastly, should the age of criminal responsibility be increased from 10 years?

It's been three years, Wigs! Can you believe it? The only unbelievable thing is that we still have no idea what's going on with our sound equipment! As is slightly evident this week, but at least we're consistent right?? Speaking of consistency, it may be time to retire one of the segments we've done since the beginning. Popping corks just makes us…
 
The Wigs discuss why strip searches have increased twenty fold in the last decade, the proposed Religious Freedom Bill in relation to Israel Folau and the AFP raids on journalists. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.על ידי Minnimal Productions
 
Hi, Wigs! Remember us?! That's right, we're back after having taken the summer off totally on purpose and not at all in an unplanned way. We missed you and our usual shenanigans, so we're back in full force. It's an episode of doughy white dudes including the salsa dancing potato that is Sean Spicer and the racist, D-bag "comedian" that was cast on…
 
The Wigs is the first and only podcast featuring practising barristers talking shop. Featuring Emmanuel Kerkyasharian, Felicity Graham, Stephen Lawrence and hosted by Jim Minns, episode one will be launching very, very soon. Stay tuned!

Listen, we're not known for keeping our knickers knot-free, but this week might take the cake. Maybe it's that we've been away a while or maybe it was the bottle of wine, but we took it out on the Cats trailer, Disney World Mom, Titus Burgess, Jake Paul and yes, even the Queen herself. Something must be in the air. That has to be it. It can't be th…
 
No, white clams are not what we call those pissed off bigots who are mad about the casting of The Little Mermaid remake. But it kind of definitely works. There's also a whole bunch of other rants about the latest KUWTK drama, Jeffrey Epstein, streaming service overload and yes, even the 1995 classic, "Now and Then." We've got TWO Second Opinions an…
 
Hi, Wigs! We're back with an extra long one starring a very special guest, writer/producer and Paul's hubby, Nick Rufca. We do all the usual nonsense PLUS a deep dive into the career of Madame X (some of you might know her better as Madonna). Nick is her #1 Stan, so you'll definitely want to hear all the fascinating and honest insights we uncovered…
 
There has never been a more appropriate episode title. Spoiler alert, and the only one you're going to get, Lindsay hated the Game of Thrones finale. She talks about it A LOT. In detail. It's like when your crazy aunt gets cut off in the Target parking lot and someone steals her spot, except, it's about Game of Thrones. So much. Here are the actual…
 
Hi, Wigs! Are you ready for the biggest podcast spectacular of the year starring Hollywood's hottest A-List stars? Well, tough titties, this is just Wigs & Wice! This week we get into our feelings about Game of Thrones, Nicholas Cage, Bob Kraft and starving anal worms (unrelated somehow!) And if that's not enough to make you hit DOWNLOAD, how about…
 
Hi, Wigs! What a long strange year it has already been, no? Makes you long for the cozier night terrors of 2018. Thankfully, we're back with another episode filled with lots of confused vigor and fury to make the pain SLIGHTLY less eye-stabby. This week, we wade through the Khloe/Jordyn drama, unravel the insanity of the Momo Challenge and sashay r…
 
Whoo, we worked really hard on that title. And you've earned it because we have been MIA. We know. Consistency is not our strong suit. Neither is production value (as you'll see in the first five minutes of terrible recording audio). Why do you guys listen to this podcast again? Because we keeps it 100! And this week, we have extra help in the form…
 
Hi, Wigs! Here we come slicing back into 2019 like a Mach 3 taking aim at fragile male egos. And even though we can't manage to get this government up and running, our corks are ready to pop on all things crappy from Gwyneth Paltrow and Mary Poppins Returns to Karen Pence and the most popular egg on the planet (ironically not one in the same). We h…
 
Hi, Wigs! Well, before we round out this shitshow of a year, we have one more episode for your listening pleasure. And lucky us, you did all the work! That's right, some of our favorite listeners weighed in with their favorite things of the year (and a few popped corks for good measure). We have a twisted Troll Patrol dispatch and even a throwback …
 
Hi, Wigs! Happy holidays and congrats on zipping up your jeans during this most bloated time of year. Far less bloated (no offense) is this week’s episode, our annual best and worst of the year. That's right, our top five corks and wigs of this relatively terrible but otherwise fabulous year. It’s the perfect escape from when that cousin tries to d…
 
That's right, Wigs! We're back and so is Finch 93! But we're the ones with loads to blow this week because we've been gone SO long. This is an extra long, jam-packed episode so get yourself a bottle of something extra cold and settle in. We get into that piece of shit from Baylor, blood clots, Youtube Rewind, whatever the hell Poppy is and so much …
 
Oof, that's probably not what you were expecting to see in your pod subscriptions this AM, huh? We gotta cut to the chase, Wigs. Not only did we have to take another month break, but this episode is GNARLY. In the best way tho! All sorts of new sex stuff and not all of it has to do with our latest Supreme Court justice! LOL AREN'T WE?? Beyond that …
 
Hi, Wigs! Austin Powers finally got the answer to his burning question and as it turns out, it's Cardi B. As usual we consume and digest all the garbage juice of the week so you don't have to! From the Saturday Night Smackdown heard around the world to Les Moonves (GTFO) to the pastor who decided that there's never a wrong time to grope. We gotta b…
 
Wigs! We're back! It's been a long hot summer and we know we've been away a while, but fear not because you've got a long one (almost two hours!) on your hands (that's what he said). This week is very special because we got to interview last year's Miss America contestant who stole the entire show with her charm, confidence and killer sax rendition…
 
We're back, Wigs! The three week drought is over and we have so much to catch up on. So pour yourself a nice icy glass and settle in for some popped corks on Lin Manuel Miranda, Sharp Objects, Johnny Depp, Katharine McPhee (yeah, we recorded this before we knew her dad died so... our bad on that (but that still doesn't make the engagement any less …
 
Sorry we're a little late this week, Wigs. It's only because we have the story of the century and it took this long to get it right. It involves two gay swans from Vienna and a plastic cup and truly, it's a LOT. But you'll have to get through a whole lot of corks to earn it. This week, Lindsay goes deep, really deep, on Oceans 8. And in the midst o…
 
Wigs! It's a surprise Boner Alert! We've got a gagworthy final four for season ten of RuPaul's Drag Race, so we had to tell you ALL our thoughts before this week's reunion and next week's grand finale! Find out who's team we're on to take the crown and continue the legacy of America's Next Drag Superstar! Thanks for listening!…
 
Toss anotha' Wig on the Barbie, mates, because we're going down under this week. Not literally because we barely have the budget to go to Trader Joe's, but we did do an Itch Scratch on a seminal comedic film franchise that you might not realize is a seminal comedic film franchise. We also pop our corks over Pete & Ariana's engagement, horrific movi…
 
Hi, Wigs! This week's episode runs a little long, but it's only because we care. And Roseanne got cancelled. And we had 3/4 of a bottle of rose. And sex robots. And Drake has baby mama beef. And Westworld doesn't make sense. And Lindsay delivers a Dickensian Troll Patrol. And then, we still had to make room for flipped wigs and those are just as hi…
