Podcasts generally…

I am also adding to my series of podcasts on Civil Liberties with a podcast with Steve Hynes, Director of The Legal Action group on access to justice.

I’m planning to collate all the podcasts I have done over the past 20 months into categories.  There are 120 podcasts as of today and by categorising them into themes on my new site Lawcasts.net I hope this will make the podcasts more accessible for those who want to listen.  This cataloguing will be done over the weekend, if not before.
