E5-S7 Bagels, Podcasts and Law: A gringo in Latin America with Ken Frankel

Summary & Key Takeways

What do bagels, podcasts and law have in common?

Ken Frankel is the right answer.  Fellow podcaster, with an impressive career as a lawyer, 5 years as the OAS (Organization of Americas States) legal counsel, law professor at Belgian and American Universities. Currently the President of the Canadian Council for the Americas, Kenneth N. Frankel “Ken” is equal parts as impressive, as he is grounded and very, very witty.

In Episode 5 of Season 7, Ken shares how his upbringing in northern New Jersey shaped his career to a great extent.  From his experience as a lawyer working in Miami during the “Miami Vice” years; to how he jumped into the private sector; to his tenure with the OAS, this is a great episode for those wondering how do you change the world as a lawyer.

Most importantly, learn all about Ken’s life-long passion for all things Latin American and his unwavering support for New York Bagels.
