In the Rocket Matter 10 Minute Law Firm Podcast released on November 13, I am interviewed by Rocket Matter CEO Larry Port. In the podcast, I get to talk about one of my favorite topics, going paperless. I also talk a little about what first got me interested in technology.

If you are not listening to the 10 Minute Law Firm Podcast, I urge you to add it to your podcast playlist. The podcast covers topics that are relevant to all practitioners and, best of all, it’s always fairly short (about 10 minutes). So, even if you don’t want to listen to me, you should still subscribe.

If you are not already listening to podcasts in general, start with the 10 Minute Law Firm Podcast and then start adding from there. An attorney recently asked me for suggestions of podcasts to listen to. Below is what I sent him. Please note that this is not a complete list of all of the podcasts that I subscribe to. However, it is a good place to start.
