The OBA Podcast: Bar Talk

In Summer 2017, the Omaha Bar Association began recording podcast episodes for broadcast to both the member attorneys, and the public. The podcast is a variety of individual interviews, continuing legal education courses, and roundtable discussions on current events.

The recordings are meant to both inform and entertain listeners. The views and opinions expressed by those on the podcast do not express the views and opinions of the OBA.

We are always in search of ideas and presenters for more episodes. If you would like to be a part of the Podcast, please contact Dave Sommers at for more information.
