Led by an NPR campaign, the month of March has seen leading podcast publishers join forces to expand the podcast audience by encouraging listeners everywhere to "Try a Pod." Additionally, the hashtag #trypod is being used across social media in support of the movement. We are getting in on the action and sharing our favorite legal podcast resources, so, without further ado, we present our list of seven (or eight...) legal podcasts you should be listening to.
1. Bloomberg Law
Bloomberg Law podcast episodes feature hosts June Grasso, Michael Best and Greg Stohr as they speak with prominent attorneys and legal scholars, analyzing major legal issues and cases in the news. The show also examines all aspects of the legal profession, from intellectual property to criminal law, drawing on the deep research tools of BloombergLaw.com and BloombergBNA.com. Reporters from Bloomberg's Washington, D.C. bureau are prominently featured as they offer analysis of policy and legal issues. Listen now.

Bonus: LMA Podcast

Episodes are published every three weeks on Thursdays. Subscribe and view the full episode list, or listen to each podcast right here on Strategies+.
