For reasons unknown to me, we have been hitting the wall of late when trying to find willing victims…errr….guests for our podcast (we, as in my co-host, Linh Hua, and me - Linh makes a heroic effort to find guests, so you are spitting in her face when you ignore her invitation). If you are interested in participating in what is usually (IMO) an entertaining conversation, let one of us know. Unless the high-quality guests step up, I’m going to have to run my mouth for an entire show, all by myself. Nobody wants that. Linh especially.
Join us on Episode 19 for a lively discussion of potential implications from the recent Troester v. Starbucks decision from the California Supreme Court. Listen as I attempt to control the crowd cheering for me.
Our Class Re-Action podcast crossed the 5,000 unique downloads mark earlier this month! Sure, it's an arbitrary number. I could get worked up about 4,500 or 5,123, but 5,000 is nice, big round number. It's actually pretty awesome, since I had no idea when I decided to try something whether anyone would listen. All I wanted to do was present information in a different way than the wave of blogging that surged for a while back when this blog started. I was concerned that the signal to noise ratio would become an issue if everyone had a blog.
This is my roundabout way of saying thank you for listening. Oh, and our next show is scheduled to record on June 10, 2018. There should be plenty to talk about, so stay tuned...
The Class Re-Action Podcast is about to cross over the 5,000 listens milestone. Oh...my...gosh...we all need a life. But seriously, thanks for listening. As a reminder, you can now find the podcast through more services, including the original iTunes, iHeartRadio, Google Play, and Spotify.
Hey, Linh, thanks for all the hard work you've contributed to line up absolutely spectacular guests for each show!
Thanks again for listening.
As 2018 heats up with big decisions, Episode 17 is here just in time. Dynamex and Serrano v. Aerotek are discussed. More importantly, I decide to rename the ABC test.
For Class Re-Action podcast listeners looking for more options, you can now find this podcast on Spotify, iHeartRadio, and in the Google Play store, in addition to the iTunes location where we started.
The Class Re-Action podcast is back in business with new Episode 16, how available anywhere digital technology is! We discuss Alvarado v. Dart Container with attorneys who argued the case before the California Supreme Court. Listen loud! Listen often!
I just discovered over the weekend that links to the Class Re-Action podcasts were broken. I fixed the change in the back-end support that caused the problem, and everything appears to be working correctly again. Sorry for the inconvenience.
We are up to Episode 15 of the Class Re-Action Podcast, available here. In case you missed the explanation previously, shows will now run between 30 and 45 minutes, due to changes in MCLE requirements. I'm working on blanket provider status so that each show will qualify as MCLE. However, nobody wants reading material as homework, so we are going to stay under an hour an avoid that added complication.
Episode 14 of the Class Re-Action podcast is finally up. We recorded the episode a week ago, but a cold did me in right after the show, and I couldn't get a passable intro recorded until today. This episode is our version of the year in review. The guests are Hon. Carl J. West (Ret.) of JAMS and Lynn Frank of Frank & Feder, and we discuss the impact of decisions issued in 2014 on mediation in the class action and complex litigation settings.
Episode 13 of the Class Re-Action podcast is now available. Our Episode 13 guest is Andrew Satenberg of Manatt, who predicted a year ago our need to discuss Martinez v. Joe's Crab Shack Holdings (November 10, 2014).
Because of the changes to MCLE printed material rules, the Class Re-Action podcasts will now be 30-45 minutes longs, rather than an hour or more.
