    Good Day Steve,

    I stumbled on this podcast from a mutual connection on LinkedIn. I am a sales director who supports attorneys and their legal staff in the court reporting industry. Many times, we need to educate ourselves with the high level jargon that attorneys speak of, and we must act quick and efficiently to provide them with the resources they need to advance their case calendars. Let me just say that listening to this podcast was quite enlightening! Bobby is so intelligent and he explained intellectual property, defamation, and trademarks in ways that captured my attention and didn’t lose me in technical terms. He educated me on so many level, truly as he puts it, “compelling storytelling.” Thank you for having him as a guest and I am so glad to have found your podcasts!
