ML shares a long but well-told story about a no-show judge while Marc and Shawn wonder where he was for the latest Spartan de-pantsing and Joe thanks his lucky stars he only needs a normal-size commode.

STRAIGHT DOPE: ML starts with a plug for NEXT WEEK’s show, when Pulitzer Prize and Emmy Award winning author Sheri Fink joins the crew to discuss “Five Days at Memorial,” an outstanding limited series on Apple TV Plus.

For the second time in a month, ML tells a sordid tale about a misfit judge. He also reads every word in a quotation that wasn’t fit for print. Here’s a link to the full story.

A listener provides another piece of a puzzle involving the judge, her boyfriend, a $15,000 loan and Germany.

Shawn delves deep into how the Spartans’ woes will impact ML’s personal finances.
