CASAA Launches Its Weekly Podcast: CASAA Podcast January 19, 2015

As part of CASAA's continuing commitment to share information with the community, we are producing weekly podcasts, typically 5-15 minutes in length. Hosted by CASAA's Jan Johnson, these podcasts will focus on current issues of interest to THR advocates and vapers, including legislative issues, current Calls to Action, and more. You can expect CASAA's Legislative Director, Alex Clark, to be a frequent guest.

Podcasts will be recorded each Monday evening, and we will make every effort to have podcasts posted the next morning. CASAA podcasts are free to use and share.

The first CASAA Podcast Update January 19, 2015:
