ANCIENT FAITH RADIO INTRODUCES THE FREDERICA MATHEWES-GREEN PODCAST

 

CHICAGO MAY 10, 2007 -- Ancient Faith Radio will broadcast a new program beginning June 2, 2007, called, “Frederica Here and Now,” featuring weekly updates from noted Orthodox Christian author and speaker Frederica Mathewes-Green. “Frederica Here and Now” will be heard several times per week but will also be available via download on the Ancient Faith Radio website.

 

The broadcast will feature fresh reflections on Frederica’s travel and experiences. She will talk to interesting people, tell us fascinating stories and share unique insight into the changing world in which we live.

 

Ancient Faith Radio founder and director John Maddex said, “Frederica joins our fast-growing list of regular commentators including Fr. Tom Soroka, Dr. Clark Carlton, Matthew Gallatin, Fr. Pat Reardon, Fr. Joseph Huneycutt and more.  We’re excited about the possibilities of this broadcast as we continue to expand our offerings, and we’re glad to have Frederica on board working together with us on this new outreach.”

 

Frederica Mathewes-Green has also expressed her enthusiasm over this new project. “It's an exciting time to be a writer, with the media continually transforming itself and offering new ways to communicate. The podcast concept offers  fresh, flexible, and compelling possibilities of audio communication. I knew I didn't want to record pre-written pieces in a studio setting. I wanted to go out exploring--to use the medium's portability to create short pieces prompted by the things I see and hear and read, the people I meet, the places I go. I'm delighted that Ancient Faith Radio will host my podcast, 'Here and Now,' and looking forward to exploring this new medium's capabilities."

 

Plans include offering the weekly broadcast as a free download which can be played at any time. It will also be available as a podcast via RSS subscription for users of iTunes®, as well as users of iPods® and other MP3 players.
