Episode Overview

Are you a lawyer that could benefit from starting a podcast? Podcasting may be one of the hottest methods of marketing and entertainment in 2024, but should you start one? And if so, how? This episode will give you the answers.

Today on Hot Docket, we’re chatting with Benny Gold, Founder and Host of The Lawyer Stories Podcast, a community-driven podcast that features lawyers and law students’ stories about their personal challenges, inspirations, and motivations before and during their legal careers.

As an OG podcaster in the legal space, Benny’s here to talk about all things podcasting for lawyers: who should do it, how to do it, and of course, what NOT to do. Taking inspiration from Humans of New York, he talks about leveraging social media to build a following and the benefits of podcasting for lawyers, such as building relationships and personal branding.

Stay tuned to hear Benny crush a game of Good Question, Bad Question, where they evaluate different podcast prompts (that we may or may not have used in the past).
