🦠 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 weekday (formerly daily) at 5:00pm US Eastern time.

In Lieu of Fun is a casual, unstructured webcast that broadcast daily (with one exception) from March 25, 2020 through July 2, 2021; and every weekday since then. We talk about news, law, life, art, squirrels, murder hornets, Baby Cannons, and whatever else may come up. On most weekdays there are pre-announced guests.

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-only versions of a few episodes are also available on Acast.
