There is a podcast on the LexisNexis Insurance Law Center, which was recorded onsite at LegalTech, that contains interviews with all of the participants on this panel. Each of these panel participants write one of the Top 50 Insurance Law Blogs which are also featured (and linked to) on the Insurance Law Center at http://law.lexisnexis.com/practiceareas/insurance.
