Entertainment Law Update Podcast

Gordon Firemark, Los Angeles, CA

"I've only just discovered Gordon and Tamera's podcast (and their great blogs). They convey a lot of information in an accessible and engaging way. As a young lawyer realizing there's so much more to learn in the great post-law-school beyond, it's nice not only to get introduced to new concepts, but also to stay up to date on those already familiar to me. Hit the subscribe button already; it's worth your time."  -- Kurt
