Jeremy Hopkins, a practice manager at top commercial set 3 Verulam Buildings, and Benjamin Gray, a pupil barrister specialising in employment law at another London chambers, make the difficult journey from central London to Legal Cheek’s Hackney recording studios (AKA podcast host Alex Aldridge’s flat).
There, having plied Jez and Ben with cheap red wine, Alex asks a series of wonderfully incisive questions, unearthing the truth about what it means to work at that most venerable of British institutions, the Bar.

Sit back, crack open a Friday lunchtime can of lager, and find out. (Or listen later on iTunes)
