Best legal tech podcast

Great source for learning the latest technologies improving the legal industry and to hear from real innovators

funk79 ,

Same episode each time

Every new podcast episode has a different title and description but the audio content is the same - the interview with the guy from docket alarm. This seems like a very easy thing to fix but is a really annoying issue. Will unsubscribe if it continues.
