The goal of Pundit Review Radio is to bring the best thought leaders in the new media to the radio. In the world of legal pundits and law blogs, there is no better guest than Mr. Walter Olsen of the Cato Institute and


Walter Olson has written a series of widely acclaimed books on our legal system, beginning with The Litigation Explosion and most recently Schools for Misrule: Legal Academia and an Overlawyered America (Encounter, 2011). On the web, he founded and continues to run, widely cited as the oldest blog on law as well as one of the most popular. The Washington Post has described him an “intellectual guru of tort reform.”

His writing appears regularly in such publications as the Wall Street Journal and New York Times, and he has been a columnist for Great Britain’s Times Online as well as Reason. He has advised public officials at all levels, appeared on hundreds of broadcast shows including Oprah and testified before Congress.

Tonight we talked about all aspects of the Kagan nomination, from the criticism on the right, the left and left field (Yes, I asked Walter about Andrew Sullivan). It was a really fun discussion and a thrill to get someone so high profile and well regarded on the show.

Our mission is to bring the best of the blogs to the radio. Mission accomplished last night.
