Civil War Talk Radio

by Brett Schulte on April 15, 2008 · 0 comments

Some of you may be familiar with Civil War Talk Radio, a weekly show appearing every Friday at 12 pm Pacific on World Talk Radio. The format is usually host Gerry Prokopowicz, the History Chair at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina, interviewing a guest each week and discussing their interest in the Civil War. Most interviews center around a book or books if the guest is an author. Other guests over the years have included public historians such as park rangers and museum curators, wargamers, bloggers, and even a member of an American Civil War Round Table located in London, England.

In a new series of blog entries, I will be posting air dates, subjects, and guests, and if I have time, I’ll provide a brief summary of the program each week. You can find all of the past episodes I’ve entered into the blog by clicking on the Civil War Talk Radio category. Each program should appear either on or near the date it was first broadcast. As of this writing, I’ve managed to post all of the episodes for 2008. As I go back and listen to previous broadcasts again, I’ll post them on their original air dates. Anyone who is interested can click on the “Civil War Talk Radio” category via the Categories page here at TOCWOC to see the subjects of all older broadcasts of the show.

Unfortunately due to legal issues, I am unable to host copies of the show.  In addition, the Modavox web site for Civil War Talk Radio does not provide a way for me to link to specific episodes, so you will have to scroll to find your way.  In any case, make sure you go check out the show.  It’s become a very valuable source of information and a way to hear some of the best Civil War authors writing today speak about their subject matter in a give and take format.  The show is highly recommended!
