If you are near a computer today around lunchtime (12:00pm EST), you need to head over to the Capital Thinking radio show hosted by Kevin O’Neill.

Capital Thinking is a weekly glimpse of the intersection between politics, policy, the law, and the world of business. Capital Thinking goes beyond the typical talking head babble of traditional media to give a better understanding of what’s going on in Washington and what it means for businesses and families. Each week, the show features a mix of influential guests … policymakers, lawyers and business leaders … who will give you an in-depth and balanced look at issues of interest in Washington, the legal arena and the business world. This is a high-energy hour of radio that will give you actionable intelligence for use as a business leader and citizen. Capital Thinking is broadcast live every Thursday at 9 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Business Network.

During the second half of the show today, I will be talking with Kevin about the next steps in social media.  We will talk about business development uses, as well as the legal risks and pitfalls for employers.  We will also talk about the difference between social media and social networking.

If you miss the show, you can download the podcast afterward.  Also, you can send me a question via Twitter at @matthewdevries during the show and I will try to answer it for you.

Updated: Here is the podcast link, which will be available later this evening.
