by JEN WIGHTMAN Ever get tired of reading about the law? Preposterous, I know, but Kroll Ontrack’s monthly podcast, the ESI Report, is back and it’s better than ever! Catch up on all current and archived podcasts here to keep a pulse on ediscovery whether you are on the road, at home or in the office. June’s episode, will feature Tom Allman, co-chair of Sedona Conference Working Group 1. Tom will capsulize the status of federal rulemaking from the rare front-line perspective of a participant. This discussion will cover new language from proposed draft Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and provides context regarding where we are at in the rulemaking process and what might come next. Last month, co-blogger Eric Robinson, a Solution Architect at Kroll Ontrack, participated in a Technology Assisted Review discussion regarding the importance of evaluation metrics and math. Don’t miss May’s episode if you’re seeking to build a better understanding of key terms like Confidence Level, Precision, Recall and Accuracy. No calculator is required, but be sure to bring your ‘A game’ if you think you can top Eric’s score on the ediscovery trivia segment! In addition to the great content in the ESI Report, I’ve heard a few great episodes from CIO TalkRadio Legal. And, I keep hearing really good stuff about North Pod Law out of the UK. It sounds like a straight forward show format with the hosts and guests informally discussing the latest legal news and developments in their areas of law. I hope you check out some of these audio options. It’s nice to shake things up bit on how we ingest data in our field. And, if you have a favorite legal podcast, please drop a note in the comments!
