While you might not be hanging on every last word, it's impossible to shut off that automatic cringe when lay-folk get the law so horribly wrong. And it can often be quite the let-down when a show doesn't provide any useful information about a legal topic you're actually interested in.

Fortunately, we here at FindLaw have created this handy list of some of the best podcasts for lawyers that promise to do more than simply entertain.
