Lawyerist Celebrates 400 Podcast Episodes
It’s been almost eight years since the Lawyerist Podcast burst onto the legal podcast scene. The brainchild of Lawyerist founder Sam Glover and co-founder Aaron Street, the Lawyerist Podcast recently celebrated its 400th episode.
The idea was born in a South Minneapolis coffee shop as Serial, NPR’s mega-hit crime podcast, swept the nation. It seemed obvious to both Sam and Aaron this was an opportunity they didn’t want to miss.
“It was a vehicle for my curiosity—about lawyers’ practices, about legal innovation, and about business thinkers,” said Sam. Although he stepped away from Lawyerist in 2020 to pursue other ventures, Sam’s original vision remains intact. “I think it has kept that sense of curiosity and realness and I think that’s why listeners trust The Lawyerist Podcast,” he said.
The Lawyerist Podcast Difference
In the years since, The Lawyerist Podcast has become a leader in legal talk broadcasts. With listeners hailing from over 100 countries, it tops best podcast lists and averages over 40,000 monthly downloads. And, it’s played host to legal minds, business gurus, tech whizzes, and more.
We tackle what it’s like to own a law firm, run a business, be a healthy owner, and a great manager.
Unlike other legal-centered podcasts, the Lawyerist Podcast primarily focuses on how to run a law firm as a successful and healthy business. According to podcast co-host and Lawyerist CEO Stephanie Everett, this is by design.
“Our show is about running your law firm as a business. We really are trying to build a show that applies to all solo and small firm owners. We tackle what it’s like to own a law firm, run a business, be a healthy owner, and a great manager,” she said. “We look for guests who can speak to that and sometimes bring in people from other industries.”
Above all, she further explained, the Lawyerist Podcast is about educating listeners with new concepts. Ultimately, its goal is to help small law firm owners think in new ways and discover how to apply what they learn to their firms.
Continuing the Legacy of the Lawyerist Podcast
Lawyerist always aims to be at the forefront of industry developments to help shepherd small firm lawyers and their businesses to success. “We will continue to want to be on the leading edge of what’s happening. We want our audience to know they can rely on us to understand what changes are happening and their impact,” noted Stephanie.
Topics range from emotional intelligence to real-world business implementation ideas and the nitty-gritty of cutting-edge legal tech. Here are some to note and listen to now:
The Lawyerist team is proud to continue the legacy of the Lawyerist Podcast. And they hope to help guide, educate, and inspire listeners for years to come. Zack Glaser, podcast co-host and Lawyerist Legal Tech Advisor, summed up the sentiment perfectly. “I just really consider myself extremely lucky to get to be a caretaker of this program,” he said. “I look forward to another 400 people—another 400 voices—helping to move our audience forward and be better lawyers and better business owners.”
