Son of a lawyer, recovering lawyer, author, podcast founder, and philanthropist—those are some words to describe Landis Wade. Words, however, don’t capture the breadth and depth of Landis. Ever the preparer, Landis and I exchanged emails in preparation for this podcast (at Landis’ direction) all because Landis wanted to prepare. He’s always prepared.
He treats his podcast the same way a lawyer treats a deposition. He pores through an author’s work, identifies key points, and cultivates a deeper dive into those points because his goal is to “give a voice to an author’s written word.” A voice he has given. His podcast is Charlotte Reader’s Podcast, which was recognized last year as Charlotte’s best podcast by the Queen City Nerve.
Today, we’re going to talk with Landis about changes he’s seen in the practice of law; his personal phrase of “Always Believe,” depression, and as many other topics as we can cover in this space. Thank you for being a guest of the Human Lawyer podcast, Landis.
