Marian Pierre-Louis Radio Shows are Great!

Do you like listening to radio shows?  What about genealogy and family history radio shows?

Genea-blogger Marian Pierre-Louis now has two radio shows that are available on the Internet.

1)  Fieldstone Common is up to Episode 73, and focuses on Marian's interviews with authors of genealogy, family history and local history books.  The publicity for this show includes:

"Fieldstone Common is a weekly internet radio show (podcast) for genealogists and history buffs.
Host Marian Pierre-Louis will introduce you to authors and historians who bring history alive! Topics focus on history and genealogy in the Northeast United States.
"Authors, historians, curators, archivists, genealogists and other stewards of history are interviewed about their books or projects."
The archived shows are listed at http://www.fieldstonecommon.com/show-schedule/.

Here is the page for the interview with George G. Morgan and Drew Smith on 2 January 2014 about their book, Advanced Genealogy Research Techniques:

2)  The Genealogy Professional Podcast is up to episode 7.  Marian interviews notable genealogy professionals about their experiences, businesses, and research specialties.  The archived shows are listed on the home page in the right-hand column.  The publicity for this podcast includes:

"Whether you are transitioning into the world of professional genealogy or already an experienced genealogy professional, this podcast will give you new ideas to make your business even better.

"Each week I will interview experienced genealogy professionals about the challenges they had in starting their business and the strategies they took to overcome those obstacles.  

"Are you ready to learn and grow in your business? Join me and let’s get started."

If these types of radio/podcast shows are of interest to you, I encourage you to listen to them.
