Retired U.S. Magistrate Judge from the Southern District of New York, Andrew Peck joins Sarah and Mike this week to talk about his path to the law, how he became a judge, and what he does now that he’s retired from the bench.

In this wide-ranging conversation, Judge Peck describes how he started out as a math and computer major at Cornell before switching majors and attending law school, thanks to his love of history and Perry Mason. He talks about how two events in his professional career led him to pursue a career on the bench and how much he enjoyed being a decision-maker more than an advocate.

He then talks about his post-retirement life, including his love for Sherlock Holmes and the New York Yankees.
