Great hosts, fun conversations
I've listened to all episodes and look forward to each new one. Agree with other comment that title is unnecessarily limiting to young lawyers. I know YLS sponsors it, but the topics and high quality guests appeal to everyone (even, non-lawyers!!!)
Enjoyed the podcast, but.....
Didn’t like the age limiting intro-“for younger or youngish lawyers”. Don’t confine your audience to a particular lawyer demographic. A lot of people, lawyers or not, will find your topics interesting. Best of luck with the podcast!
Love this podcast. Great idea.
