🦠 In 2020, we were stricken by a coronavirus pandemic.

We aren't allowed to have fun anymore; but in lieu of fun, you can grab a beverage of your choice and come hang out with us, your hosts Ben Wittes, Kate Klonick, Scott Shapiro, and Genevieve DellaFerra every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 5:00pm US Eastern time.

🐝 In Lieu of Fun is a casual, unstructured webcast that has broadcast since March 25, 2020. We talk about news, law, life, art, squirrels, murder hornets, Baby Cannons, and whatever else may come up. Often there are pre-announced guests.


🔎 How to Find Us: Episodes are streamed live on Crowdcast, YouTube, and a variety of other streaming platforms. You can find links to recordings of past episodes from the Episode Log. Audio versions of many episodes are also available on the ILoF Acast feed.
