In the Balance Podcast

Welcome to In the Balance: An Iowa Judicial Branch Podcast. This podcast expands on our promise of open and transparent courts, taking you beyond the courtroom doors to learn about the Iowa judicial system and the many people who keep our state’s courts operating efficiently and fairly. In each monthly episode, we will explore the in’s and out’s of our state-level court system, host interviews with judges and justices, and shine a light on Iowa’s rich judicial past, present, and future.

Look for new episodes the last Tuesday of every month on iTunes, Spotify, and our website, www.iowacourts.gov. Like and subscribe wherever you listen to receive notifications when new episodes are available.
