Podcast Episode 1: Voice of the Client, Lynn

After several years of pondering starting a podcast, here is the debut episode!  My goal for the podcast is to have several different episode types that align with how I view Agile.  Agile is a revolutionary approach to managing knowledge work of all kinds – including legal work.
