In this episode I talk to Author Mark Shaiken. After a 4 decades long legal career, he left law to write books, volunteer, play music and travel.His latest book came out just before Christmas, 2022. It is the third in his legal series starring Josephina Jillian Jones, 3J to her friends. She is a black, female partner in a large Kansas City law firm. In the latest book, titled “Unfair Discrimination,” a committee of creditors hires 3J, one of whom is the leader of a White Nationalist organization on the government’s domestic terrorist list. When the member realizes he will not get paid back everything he is owed, he blames 3J, a black attorney, and opposing counsel, a Jewish attorney. How far will the hater go to get paid back and what steps will he take to do so in the name of White Nationalism?
