The Kennedy-Mighell Report : Second Brain Project: Action, Part 1
Dennis and Tom return to their ongoing personal knowledge management project: the Second Brain. In previous episodes, they discussed the ‘capture’ and ‘organization’ elements of the project, and are now ready to move on to the third pillar—action! They talk through how they hope to put their second brains to use, the challenges they still expect to have to overcome, and how automation will play a key role in making their stored data accessible when needed. In their second segment, they look at trending mice, trackpads, pens and other input devices, including a few of their personal favorites.
As always, stay tuned for the parting shots, that one tip, website, or observation you can use the second the podcast ends.

ABA Law Student Podcast : Housing and Eviction Law: Helping Tenants in the Midst of COVID-19
At the start of the pandemic, Colorado lawyer Zach Neumann posted on social media that he would gladly assist those facing evictions, but quickly saw that the need was far too great for him to handle alone. To address this pressing problem, he founded the COVID-19 Eviction Defense Project in Colorado. ABA Law Student Podcast host Meg Steenburgh talks with Zach about how the Project does its work and how law students anywhere in the country can get involved and help with housing and eviction crises in their own communities.
Zach Neumann is a lawyer whose practice focuses on landlord-tenant, debt collection, and wage dispute cases and is the founder of the COVID-19 Eviction Defense Project in Colorado.

New Solo : Oh, The Messes We See
When Peggy Gruenke’s business CPN Legal takes on projects with lawyers to implement new accounting technology and processes, she often finds a mess to clean first.
Many firms don’t have adequate finance and accounting habits or make the mistake of hiring bookkeepers without experience working with law firms. Those mistakes, if not cleared up, can put law licenses in jeopardy.
Host Adriana Linares has Gruenke walk through best practices in setting up a business, from getting an EIN to deciding whether to incorporate as an LLC or a partnership. These steps help in determining the types of law practice management and accounting systems to choose.
The two also discuss the negatives and positives of various practice management and accounting tools on the market.
And in this episode’s New Insights segment, brought to you by Nota, Eric Ganci returns to answer Robert Southwell’s second question - what are the must-have trial prep reference materials new attorneys should be keeping close at hand?

Customer ReviewsSee All
I love the varied topics of the podcasts. Great legal topics.
Yes it’ll bring the temperature down. A great show. You answered questions that I didn’t even think of yet such as the Twinkie eater doesn’t have a way to change the outcome. You laid it out in a way that you were my granddaughter in the 10th grade could understand. Thank you!
George Floyd Commercial
The George Floyd podcast was incredibly dishonest. It was essentially a Ben Crump Commercial. Not one tough question. Zero pushback on Crump’s lies. Extremely disappointing.
Floyd had a “fatal level of Fentanyl” in his system. He likely died of a drug overdose. That’s what
the medical examiner reported. Think that might be important information?
How many other times do attorneys tell police officers to “not follow the training”. Zero. In fact attorneys slam officers who do not follow training. And rightly so.
If uneducated people listen to this - they will remain uneducated. It’s your content. I get it. But this was biased, dishonest, and objective at all.
