Ever want to hear more about serials from the perspective of editors and
publishers? Here's an opportunity! I've launched a webcast radio program
called Periodical Radio, available at
While intended for a general audience, the questions I ask and the
responses may be of particular interest to my fellow Serialisters.
Five programs are currently available:
Voices: Journal of the New York Folklore Society
Ellen McHale, Executive Director. Folklore, membership subscriptions,
and challenges of maintaining a non-profit society's journal.
New York State Conservationist
David Nelson, Editor. Wildlife and conservation, role of magazine in
mission of state agency, and title changes.
Richard Koszarski, Editor-in-Chief. Themes in the history of film, role
of associate editors and editorial advisory board.
Film & History
Deborah Carmichael, Associate Editor. History in film and film in
history, using film as a teaching tool, and the journal's companion
Thomas White, Editor. Documentary filmmaking, impact of digital
revolution, role of festivals and awards, and subscription vs. newsstand
My goal is to do a program a week. If there is a journal or magazine you
think would make an interesting program, please let me know! Our plan is
to archive the programs indefinitely.
