RadioDoc Review (RDR) is a digital journal where selected audio/radio documentaries, podcasts and features from around the world are critiqued by eminent scholars and/or practitioners of the form. It is published twice a year, overseen by an international editorial board, and emanates from the University of Wollongong, Australia. RadioDoc Review will also publish theoretical essays related to the audio documentary or crafted podcast form, in order to promote collaboration and debate among the international community of podcasters, audio documentary producers, broadcast industry professionals and academics, and develop the theory and practice of the audio documentary/podcast form. This has lately seen a resurgence, as enhanced podcasting technology facilitates global listener access to audio works and creates new consumers and creators of audio works. General reviews are approved by an editorial committee and articles of scholarly critical analysis are double blind peer-reviewed. The selection of audio works for review is refereed by the Editorial Board. All nominated audio works can be seen in the Selected Documentaries tab.
