Legal Current, a blog published by Thomson Reuters, today added a new feature, the Legal Current podcast. The podcast will feature “information and commentary on the global business and practice of law.”

Today’s first episode covers several topics in the news — the Arizona immigration law, the Supreme Court’s animal cruelty ruling and the BP oil spill.

The 20-minute podcast has a bit of PR spin to it. It is hosted by Leonard Lee and Angie Butterbrodt from the Thomson Reuters media-relations staff and several of the guests are authors of Thomson Reuters books. But the guests aren’t there to pitch anything and they are well qualified to comment on their topics.
