We are continuing our coverage of Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard, which is arguably the civil trial of the year, if not the decade. Johnny Depp has sued Amber Heard for $50 million dollars due to an op-ed she wrote for the The Washington Post. Amber Heard, after attempting to have the lawsuit dismissed multiple times, filed a countersuit, which alleges that Johnny Depp defamed her when he and her lawyers called her allegations false, a hoax, etc.

Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard trial

This trial is wrought with abusive lawyering, mind-boggling rulings from the judge, and seriously outrageous courtroom behavior and allegations, including that Amber once defecated on Johnny’s bed after a fight. While many podcasts are covering the trial from the perspective of relationship experts, psychologists, and other “scientists,” Melanie and I have not found many lawyers weighing in on the trial, its significance, and the misconceptions circulating on social media.

In our most recent episode, we take on objections. What are they for? When are they embarrassing? And which lawyers are the worst? We also share our Nostradamus-quality visions of what to expect from JD’s lawyers’ cross-examination of Amber Heard (spoiler alert: JD’s lawyers are nasty) and other hot-takes from the last week of testimony and competing podcast coverage.

In future episodes, we will cover Amber’s testimony, what evidence she brings to support her defense and claim, how performative Johnny’s team is for the jury and social media, and the verdict.
