I always love how Rachel can reach back in history and pull threads of stories together like that.

He is super nice. He says he introduces himself as Joyce Vance's husband, lol. He said they send her what clothes they want her to wear and she loves all the new clothes.

Fun fact, he is running for Chief Justice of our Supreme Court and is supported by reps and dems alike.

She is so smart and so smooth when explaining legal points. My father was born and raised in Alabama (Tallassee, Al) so I'm delighted to find out her husband is running for Chief Justice of the Al Supreme Court --- hope he wins!

but I guess I was wrong! Her background makes her opinions more credible as a commentator on these shows.

I’ve always had respect for Joyce Vance’s experience and expertise. This connection to Judge Vance makes me see her in a whole new light. Wow. Just wow. She must be feeling a lot today.
