<p style="text-align: justify;">For purposes of this post, we will assume that our readers are mostly insurance claim professionals, attorneys, underwriters and others involved in the insurance industry.   Now, think back to before you were involved in this industry, whether just out of college or law school, or before you changed careers and started working in insurance.  What were your pre-conceived notions of "insurance defense," "insurance claim handling" or even "insurance coverage litigation?"    Chances are, your perception -- if you even had one -- was that insurance defense was mundane, and certainly not a career filled with excitement.</p>
<p style="text-align: justify;">The insurance industry gets a bad rap.   You know what insurance defense and claim handling involve, on every single case?  Interesting characters.  Heated disputes about liability, and most of all -- stories.   Every claim comes with its own story, or series of stories.   How many people in other fields can say that every day, a new fact pattern lands on his or her desk, involving a completely different cast of characters, all of whom have their own unique version of a disputed event?   And your job is to figure out which version is true (or tru-est, as the case may be) and which will have the most appeal to a jury of six strangers!   Every claim involves a puzzle that requires solving.   That sounds a more appealing than the moniker "insurance defense," doesn't it?   In fact, as you read this, there's a good chance one or two stories from claims you have handled came to mind.</p>
Our industry is filled with unique personalities and "war stories," whether from trials, claim disputes, mediations or otherwise.   The idea behind the <strong>Call Your Next Witness</strong> podcast is to share some of those stories, and lessons learned along the way, with people inside and outside of our industry.

With storytelling being a theme here, naturally, our first interviewee is Dennis Wade, one of the founders of Wade Clark Mulcahy LLP.  You can listen to Part 1 of our interview with Dennis <strong><a href="https://open.spotify.com/episode/6IIc0ToAGgcVe7Q0CaNXYP?si=pDIicVhdRx-Bw5yuLgurAQ">here, on Spotify</a></strong> or search "<strong>Call Your Next Witness</strong>" on <strong><a href="https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/call-your-next-witness/id1552130914">ITunes</a></strong>, <strong><a href="https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy80OTZkODhjMC9wb2RjYXN0L3Jzcw?sa=X&amp;ved=0CAMQ4aUDahcKEwiojYnQu7XwAhUAAAAAHQAAAAAQBQ&amp;hl=en">Google podcasts</a></strong>, or other platforms.
