Houston, TX – The State Bar of Texas, in conjunction with Legal Talk Network, launched a new podcast to provide information and value 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 what matters to practitioners.
The State Bar of Texas Podcast started in 2016 with conference coverage and other short episodes, but the bar decided to overhaul the content and production value in 2018 with the help of Legal Talk Network. New episodes will take an honest look at issues, stories, and happenings within the legal world and how they affect practitioners in Texas and elsewhere.
“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 interviewer, 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.”
In addition to 14 episodes covering the 2018 State Bar of Texas Annual Meeting, the podcast relaunched with three episodes featuring in-depth interviews: Anthony Graves on overcoming a wrongful conviction, Brian Cuban on depression and addiction in the mind of a lawyer, and Bryan Garner on what it’s like to write with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
“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.”
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 the legal profession.
“Being a lawyer—especially a Texas lawyer—can be fascinating, fun, and yes, fulfilling,” says host Rocky Dhir. “The State Bar of Texas Podcast aims to inspire and inform lawyers from across the country—and across the world—with compelling ideas, stories, and personalities that will help you grow your practice 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.”
