With its first program having debuted in October, the Intellectual Property Colloquium is a promising series of monthly podcasts devoted to intellectual property law. The current program features an interview with Paul Michel, chief judge of the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, who talks about patent reform. Here is how the program describes itself:

The Intellectual Property Colloquium is an online audio program devoted to intellectual property topics. We aspire to be something like an NPR talk show, but focused on copyrights and patents, and aimed primarily at a legal audience. Our programs are neither lectures nor debates. They are instead conversations, with guests drawn from academia, the entertainment community, the judiciary, and various technology industries.

Even better, the show offers CLE credit to lawyers in California, New York, Texas, Illinois and Washington, with other states to come. It is produced in partnership with the UCLA School of Law and sponsored by Loeb & Loeb, LECG and Intellectual Property Symposium. Hat tip to Mass Law Blog for pointing it out.
