I realized today that my LawNext podcast recently hit a milestone — its 25oth episode. In fact, with the latest episode posted this week, we are up to 254 episodes.

All 254 are shown in the image above or on this live-with-links episode gallery.

When I started LawNext in 2018, I was no stranger to podcasting. Since 2005, I had cohosted Lawyer 2 Lawyer, along with Newport Beach, Calif., lawyer J. Craig Williams. We had been the very first podcast on the Legal Talk Network and the longest continually running podcast in law, at that point having racked up 586 episodes.

But, as I explained in a 2018 post, I wanted to start a podcast that focused on innovation in law and legal technology. From day one, LawNext has been laser focused on innovation and entrepreneurship in law.

I had other reasons as well, including the opportunity to work with my sonBen Ambrogi, who produces the show and with whom I’ve gone on to launch the LawNext Legal Technology Directory

I also, frankly, wanted to make a little money for my podcasting efforts. Creating a weekly show can be time consuming and labor intensive. I am enormously grateful to the various companies that have sponsored the show over the years. (And opportunities for sponsors remain!)

From my first guest, Nicole Bradick, who I interviewed shortly after she founded the legal technology design and development company Theory and Principle, to my most-recent guest, Neil Araujo, CEO of document management company iManage, I have had the good fortune to speak with a who’s who of people who are driving change in the legal industry. To each and every person who has appeared on the show: Thank you!

Thanks most of all to all of you who have listened. I know through conversations that some of you are regulars and have been pretty much from the start. But even if you are only an occasional listener, I am grateful for you.

By the way, adding up these 254 LawNext episodes, the 586 Lawyer 2 Lawyer episodes, roughly 150 episodes of our weekly Legaltech Week podcast, and maybe a dozen or so episodes of Law Technology Now, which I cohosted from 2017 to 2018, plus appearances on other podcasts, I am now somewhere north of 1,000 podcast episodes total.
