About The Podcast

AM in the AM is a forum for frank discussion of Politics, Law and History. These and many other topics have been the subject of heated debate between Boris and Adrian since they first met. As bystanders, referees, and spirited participants in their conversations, we, their friends, have nominated them for podcast stardom. Each week, we will discuss a variety of newsworthy, historical and downright bizarre topics. We will aim for informed and persuasive rhetoric, but will settle for impassioned argument. Please join us for your weekly dose of AM in the AM.

The Talent

Adrian Angus

Adrian is a public defender in Massachusetts. With the heart of a bureaucrat, and the charm of a politician, he delights in minor league baseball and curling. Our resident expert on Canada, Adrian has split his time both north and south of the 49th parallel. A proud graduate of McGill he hopes to one day achieve the heights of his fellow graduate and mentor Mr. William Shatner.

Boris Milman

Boris is a lawyer in Boston. Born in the former Soviet Union, his family made their way to Brooklyn, NY in the early 1990s. As a classic overeducated liberal with degrees in finance, Russian studies and (of course) law, Boris brings a unique perspective on the issues of today and yesterday.
