The State Bar of Texas Brings New Podcast to Members in Partnership with Legal Talk Network
Jul 12, 2018
Legal Newswire POWERED BY LAW.COMHouston, TX - On June 20th, 2018, the State Bar of Texas, in conjunction with Legal Talk Network, launched a new podcast to provide value and entertainment to bar members. The State Bar of Texas Podcast will provide monthly coverage on news and topics relating to the legal profession, with a focus on people and issues from Texas.
The State Bar of Texas Podcast started in 2016 with conference coverage and other short episodes, but in 2018 the content and production value was overhauled with the help of Legal Talk Network. New episodes will take an honest look into actual issues, stories, and happenings within legal fabric of Texas and how that affects real people and cases. Although this podcast is created to benefit the members of the State Bar of Texas, it also covers topics that will be interesting to the general public.
In addition to 14 episodes covering their 2018 Annual Meeting, the podcast relaunched with three in-depth interviews; “Anthony Graves on Overcoming a Wrongful Conviction,” “Depression and Addiction in the Mind of a Lawyer” with Brian Cuban, and “What It’s Like to Write with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia” with Bryan Garner.
“We are pleased to partner with Dallas attorney Rocky Dhir and the Legal Talk Network on this exciting project,” State Bar of Texas Executive Director Trey Apffel said. “The State Bar of Texas Podcast will serve our members by featuring in-depth news and insightful discussion relevant to lawyers in Texas and beyond.”
“It was an honor to work with such a prominent bar association ” said Legal Talk Network CEO Adam Camras. “Rocky Dhir is truly a professional behind the mic and the experts behind the scenes at the State Bar of Texas have a creative and powerful vision that we are proud to help produce.”
“Being a lawyer—especially a Texas lawyer—can be fascinating, fun, and yes, fulfilling,” said host Rocky Dhir. “The State Bar of Texas Podcast, in partnership with the Legal Talk Network, aims to inspire and inform lawyers from across the country—and across the world—with compelling ideas, stories, and personalities that will help them grow their practices and build a better life. To me, the best part about this podcast is that it will engage non-lawyers as well and bridge the gap that can sometimes exist between attorneys and clients. You won’t want to miss this road trip through the world of law. After all, life's a journey."
The podcast will continue to publish monthly episodes featuring high-profile guests, serious and topical concerns, advice for practicing lawyers, and many other issues facing Texas Bar members.
