Tax Section Launches Podcasts

By Linda M. Beale, Wayne State University, Detroit, MI

We are delighted to announce the launch in this issue of the ABA Tax Times of a new feature, People in Tax Podcasts. James Creech, serving as our interviewer, will talk with a diverse array of new and experienced tax professionals from across the Tax Section, including lawyers in private practice, government officials, and tax academics. These conversations will provide insight into the various careers in tax enjoyed by our members and information about career trajectories, from education through involvement in the Tax Section’s many activities. Please don’t hesitate to participate if asked—recording will be conducted at a convenient location during the Tax Section’s regular meetings.

In this issue, People in Tax Podcasts features an interview with Lany L. Villalobos, an associate at Dechert LLP practicing in the area of employee benefits and executive compensation.

People in Tax Podcasts will be featured in each issue of ABA Tax Times and will also be published at least twice a month by the Tax Section on an external platform.  Look for upcoming podcasts featuring Keith Fogg, Karen Hawkins, Amy Spivey, Jonathan Strouse, and Valerie Vlasenko. The podcasts will be available via RSS feed in Apple Podcasts, Google Play, TuneIn, Stitcher, and Spotify.  ABA Tax Times will also continue to publish text interviews in the People in Tax feature.
