Next Lawyer Up Podcast
I, Ron Sykstus, am a fan of a number of podcasts that are done by comedians where they talk to other comedians. These podcasts mostly feature comedian friends and acquaintances that have known one another over the years. It is interesting to me since they are in the same world and the discussion centers more around their lives and history, rather than what they do. Many of the lawyers that I know have interesting backgrounds and lives. Rarely does that information get divulged since most lawyers spend a majority of their time engaged in what is pretty often the stressful practice of law. It occurred to me to reach out to some of these lawyers to try and have a one-on-one discussion with them about how they got to where they are now. These lawyers are well-respected in their communities, both professionally and socially.
