The Launch: Our New “Big Legal Minds” Podcast Series

I’m excited to announce the launch of my new podcast series: “Big Legal Minds.” The series will consist of these two types of programs:

– 40-minute interviews with well-known folks from our community about their illustrious careers (four of these are posted so far)
– 20-minute talk shows with a pair of practitioners about news of the day (first one of these is coming soon)

The podcasts are available in 3 different ways:

– Posted on with our other podcasts
– Posted on
– Available on iTunes or Google Play (use the “My Podcasts” app on your iPhone and search for “Big Legal Minds”; you can subscribe to the feed so that any new podcast automatically downloads)

So many people listen to podcasts these days that they subscribe to via their phones that I decided to make our podcasts available in this “easy-to-download & listen” format. Let me know if you have ideas!
