Introducing the Podcast

We’re excited to finally share the news: we’ve launched the new Podcast, hosted by our good friend mediator Veronica Cravener!  You can check out the first episodes (and find all future episodes) here: — or just search any of your favorite podcast serving sites, from iTunes to Spotify to IHeartRadio… we’re on (or soon to be on) all of them.

Podcasts have emerged as one of the most exciting spaces for community and conversation on the internet, and we’re delighted to have Veronica leading the way in bringing mediation to a wider audience through this new channel.

We aim for the Podcast to cover everything in the world of mediation: conflict resolution, best practices, ethics, technology, and business development. Episodes will include interviews with experienced practitioners, discussions of practice dilemmas, and explorations of the future of the mediation field.

We’d love to hear your ideas about topics as well — just send an email to [email protected] and I’ll put your idea into our queue.  There’s so many exciting stories happening in the world of mediation I’m sure we’ll never run out of topics.

Please join us and let us know what you think.  If you’re interested in mediation, just getting started as a mediator, or if you have decades of practice under your belt — we’d love to have you as part of our new podcast community.
