Call Your Next Witness (Cannabis Edition) — Alex Buscher of Buscher Law LLP
Call Your Next Witness – Ryan Eakes of Typhoon FarmaAfter a short break, the Call Your Next Witness podcast is back, with our first in a series of cannabis-related interviews.
The Cannabis Industry was taboo as recently as 10 years ago. But now, not only is it a blossoming industry, but its becoming mainstream to the point where attorney and insurance conventions are including presentations specific to cannabis and how to insure that risk.
But how does one actually get into the commercial cannabis space, and what is the day-to-day like? Ryan Eakes, Chief Operating Office of Typhoon Farma, a hemp farm in western Colorado, offers some great insight into those questions through his own journey. With a background in construction and business development — not in agriculture — Ryan jumped on an opportunity to get into the cannabis and hemp world on the ground floor. Ryan encounters daily challenges that are truly unique to the cannabis industry, especially given the ever-changing regulatory framework he has to navigate.

Call Your Next Witness – M.C. Sungaila
On this episode of Call Your Next Witness, I interviewed M. C. Sungaila, a renowned appellate attorney based in Orange County, California. Her practice focuses on civil appeals, trial strategy and consulting. We discussed her role as a trial strategist, and how she recognized early in her career that appellate practice, as opposed to trial practice, was the right fit for her. We also discussed the unique HR situation we have been facing, given the significant turnover in the legal and insurance industries, and what we can do as law firm managers to keep our teams personally and professionally satisfied.
This is a good listen not only for law firm managers, but also for younger associates looking for some insight on how to advance in the industry. M.C. also hosts a podcast called the Portia Project, which focuses on women lawyers and judges, and some insights from their respective journeys.
