Law Podcasting Episode 21 Marc Diaz of The Lawyer Straight Talk Podcast

…[podcasting is] an easy way to generate a ton of content.

— Marc Diaz, Lawyer Straight Talk

 

 

 

My guest for episode 21 is Marc Diaz, a Real Estate practitioner in the Memphis Tennessee area with a firm called CLOSETRAK. They work mostly in the residential transactional space, and represent real estate investors around the southeastern United States. Marc has always been interested in entrepreneurship, and serves as an adjunct professor in entrepreneurship at the University of Memphis and Entrepreneur in Residence at the Fedex Institute of Technology. Lately, he’s been giving some of his attention to the business of law, and he describes his podcast LAWYER STRAIGHT TALK as a first foray into experimenting with and testing some business models in the law.

His current projects are his podcast and the Da Vinci Golf Approach.

I enjoyed chatting with Marc, and learning his philosophy, as well as his plans to change the format of his show to a more “Serial” style narrative approach to covering a recent Memphis area murder trial.  It should be very interesting to watch.

Marc's advice for new law podcasters:  “Don't get caught up in your launch with trying too hard to get into iTunes' New & Notworthy section.  Just get the show out there”

Marc also reminds us that podcast content is great (and easy) to repurpose as other kinds of content.  Transcribe interviews, and create blog posts, ebooks, etc.  Very effective use of leverage.

Joe told me his podcasting history, including his early offering, a political news oriented blog and show entitled “Recess Appointment

 

After Joining Above The Law in 2013, Joe began pitching podcast ideas, and after a few false-starts, the organization recently began “Thinking Like A Lawyer”  in which he and co-host Elie Mystal are joined by a guest lawyer to discuss legal issues ranging from the practical to the absurd.

Law Podcasting Episode 19 – Lawyerist’s Sam Glover

“I don't think of it as an interview, as much as a conversation.”

— Sam Glover, Lawyerist.

 

 


Sam Glover is one of the founders of Lawyerist, an online, media rich publication by and for lawyers, which covers all things related to the law, and the the legal profession.  A few months ago, Sam and his partner, Aaron Street decided to launch The Lawyerist Podcast, which features their commentary and discussion, as well as interviews with thought leaders from the legal community.

I spoke with Sam about Lawyerist's beginnings, and about what drove the decision to launch a podcast, some of the behind-the-scenes aspects of creating the show, and the philosophy behind what Lawyerist does.

What I found most interesting was the objective to build a community of solo and small firm lawyers, and how the podcast serves that mission by allowing listeners to get to know the hosts better.
