In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, host Marc Clair welcomes Felony Friday author and all-around swell chap John Odermatt back to the show for another edition of 'The Felony Report!'John and Marc take a look at the recent arrest of former Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle - once famous for shedding weight by walking to Subway every day - for child pornography and child prostitution charges. They discuss how the criminalization of prostitution can help give sick and twisted criminals like Jared Fogle cover for their acts, and how legalizing prostitution would go far in preventing such crimes from being kept hidden for so long. They examine the idea of the age of consent, how society could determine one's ability to consent to sex acts, and somehow tie it all into 90's sitcom teenage doctor, Doogie Howser. John and Marc then turn to a recent report from Mother Jones detailing how 30% of the firefighters battling wildfires in CA are felons, and wonder how progressives can call for a $15 minimum wage while ignoring the $1 and less wages most felons earn to fight fires and build products for Fortune 500 companies in the United States.
