UCI Law Launches Podcast

Dear Colleagues,

Good morning. We write to tell you about a new communications initiative at the Law School and to ask your help in making it a success. We are launching a weekly audio podcast titled UCI Law Talks to highlight both formal scholarship and critical legal, political and cultural insights from our faculty for the larger legal and community audiences. Our goal is to contribute to debates on the significant issues that all of us are thinking about.

Topics discussed in podcasts should be ones with a broad interest and could include research projects, recent or forthcoming articles, and current cases or topical controversies. The podcast will be recorded by Colleen Taricani, on Tuesdays starting September 1 between 2:00 and 5:00 p.m., depending on scheduling availability. We will use the media room in the library, on the first floor, to record the audio. Especially for this first semester as we fine tune this podcast, we want to produce this as professionally as possible so it will be important that we record it in person. It will be a live to tape interview style segment no longer than 30 minutes in total air time. Jonathan Glater will be the primary host of the podcast.

The Law School will not be alone in this space. Other institutions have jumped into podcasting in recent years. No one has quite figured out the right formula – some simply put the audio and/or video of speakers or entire events online. We have a few people here with significant media experience, and we intend to improve on what is out there by offering smart, concise, and accessible conversations with some of the best thinkers and teachers in the legal academy: You.

Our plan is to upload a new podcast each week on Thursdays during the fall semester, starting September 1. For this, we need your help. If you are interested in participating in an interview in the fall, please contact Colleen Taricani and let her know which Tuesday during the fall semester you would be available for about an hour between 2:00 and 5:00 p.m. If the timing is related to real world events, please let her know that, too; we need this to be timely. We anticipate that the recording time will take less than an hour.

Thank you in advance for your interest and support! We believe this will be a really strong platform in which to showcase all of your expertise.

Jonathan Glater and Colleen Taricani
