Monterey, California Oct 22, 2022 ( – Legal Talk Network proudly announces its newest syndicated podcast, SideBar, produced and co-hosted by law school deans Jackie Gardina and Mitch Winick. The new program launches on November 5, 2022, and will focus on constitutional and civil rights. “Jackie and I believe that legal education should extend beyond the law school classroom,” says Mitchel Winick, dean of Monterey College of Law. “Our podcast will provide a platform to discuss fundamental rights that impact our everyday life,” adds Jackie Gardina, dean of The Colleges of Law in Santa Barbara and Ventura. Laurence Colletti, the Executive Producer of Legal Talk Network, said “I am excited about the fit of this show to our current lineup and am looking forward to the ongoing collaborations.” “Our hosts, Jackie and Mitch, not only understand the law but are also able to explain it in ways much easier to understand . . . plus they have a great natural chemistry which will draw the audience in,” says Colletti.

“In order to understand the laws and legal decisions that define our rights, it is important to consider three key elements . . . how did we get here . . . where are we now . . . and where are we going next,” says Gardina. “Constitutional rights do not exist in a vacuum,” agreed Winick. “If we want to understand the context of current legal decisions, it is important to discuss why these laws originally came about and how they have evolved over time, not merely what we might want them to say in today’s world.”
