"Bar Talk" Virtual Chat Series

Starting in late March 2020, the OBA launched a new video version of its "Bar Talk" Podcast. This "Virtual Chat" edition is meant to educate, connect, and (sometimes) entertain the membership of the Omaha Bar Association. Approximately 2 or 3 episodes will be released every week, until things get back to normal and we can start connecting in person at OBA events. If you have any ideas for a Chat, please just email Dave at

Each Virtual Chat will be posted on Facebook (, Instagram (, Twitter (, and YouTube ( Feel free to follow the OBA on those platforms to watch the videos as soon as they are posted. (There may be a lag of a couple of days on this website page.)
