Start-up Enthusiast ,

Great podcast, current topics

A great podcast for attorneys, law students, inventors, and businesspeople!

Vineet Vallam ,

Podcasts with great topics and easily understandable even by a law school student

I wanted to add a review because IP Fridays have given me great insights into cases, laws, and legal advances that I otherwise would not have been exposed to. I love hearing about current real-world applications of patent & trademark laws that I have only learned in a classroom setting. Huge thanks to the team behind IP Friday's; I will be a lifelong listener!
