Law Podcasting Episode 0 – Inaugural with Host Gordon Firemark


Gordon Firemark

In this inaugural episode I’m going to tell you about my own journey to podcasting.

Who I am

I am Gordon Firemark. I have background as an audio technician in theatre, and then in TV production before I became an attorney.  I first got the bug to work on live theatre in 7th grade, when I was invited by our school Principal to run the sound for a school variety show. And that what makes me interested in microphones, mixing boards and sound effects. That’s a background that I bring to this podcasting but honestly,  it isn’t necessary that podcasters have that set of skills. This is something that anyone who listens to the radio, or any spoken word kind of material will be able to hang on very quickly.

Sound Guy to Lawyer to Podcaster

Anyway, I began my life as a “sound guy” — sound, lighting, and live theatre. And later in College, I became a major in Radio, Television, and Film. After stints in theatre, journalism, and fine art photography, I ended up doing television production. During my senior year in College, I discovered an aptitude for the legal and regulatory and management side of the television and film businesses. And so, I was encouraged by my professors to consider law school.  I didn't go right away, but eventually the Writer's Guild went on strike, and work in film and TV was scarce.  So,  I attended Southwestern School of Law and I graduated in the Spring in 1992 along with massive class of lawyers that been seduced to by the television show “L.A. Law”.   After Law School, I did manage to find a position in a small entertainment litigation boutique. And then shortly thereafter, in the winter of 1993, I went out on my own as a solo. I’ve been practicing transactional la in the fields of theatre, film, television, and new media ever since. » Read more
