[Commlist] EOI for Editor, RadioDoc Review - journal of audio storytelling and podcasts

Thu Jan 09 17:37:04 GMT 2020

The open access journal Radiodoc Review <> was founded in 2013 to develop informed critical analysis of crafted audio storytelling works and audio features. Uniquely, its international editorial board comprises both eminent scholars in audio/podcasting studies and top industry professionals, who collaborate to select works for review, contribute critiques and nominate other eminent persons to review a work. We have published some 230,000 words of expert critical analysis of the audio storytelling/feature form and our articles and associated canon of audio works are set texts in universities around the world.​ After six years as founding editor, I am standing aside.

*I attach the Expression of Interest for a new Editor, RadioDoc Review, 2020-2022, due 31 Jan 2020.*

*It can also be found here <>.*

In the latest issue <>:​

  * Jeanti St Clair reviews an innovative geo-locative work about a
    sexual assault trial, /Consent: Walk the Walk/, by Canadian producer
    Chris Brookes in collaboration with Emily Deming;

  * the investigative US podcast /In the Dark S2/ is critiqued by
    award-winning producer Sharon Davis. Curtis Flowers, its subject,
    has been tried six times for the same crime - he recently had his
    first Christmas at home in 23 years and the prosecutor has this
    week recused himself. The podcast revealed how black jurors had been
    systematically excluded;

  * /Tara and George, /about a homeless couple in London,//earns praise
    from award-winning producer Hamish Sewell, who unpacks the delicate
    line walked by producer Audrey Gillan on subjectivity;
  * from Australia, /No Feeling is Final/ is commended for its
    engaging treatment of a difficult topic, the host's own mental
    illness, though reviewer Britta Jorgensen finds some questions

  *  From Bogotá, Charlotte De Beauvoir analyses the structure of
    Gimlet's /The Habitat/, noting how its episodic format  informs its
    storytelling impact and character development;

  * Hugh Levinson, Head of BBC Radio Current Affairs, brings a mostly
    enthusiastic gaze to bear on /Have You Heard George's Podcast/, a
    true original from a young Ugandan-British voice, George Mpanga.
