Issue 88 editorial by Martin Palicki, InPark Magazine publisher
As I type out this editorial, our team is hard at work assembling the first season of IPM’s new podcast: InPark Tracks. Before we launch the new series, I wanted to explain a little bit about what you can expect, and how it ties in to this publication.
Our episodes are scheduled to air weekly and designed with the busy professional in mind. Many enjoy – or even prefer – an audio platform for consuming industry information. Most episodes are 10-20 minutes long, and will follow one of three formats. First, some episodes will function as audio-book versions of the articles you can find in the pages of InPark and on our website. In many instances, the article will be read by its author. Some early examples of this will include Alcorn McBride’s Scott Harkless reading from his series of columns published in all four of our 2021 magazines.
Other episodes will follow an interview-style format where listeners get to know key industry leaders in a different way. One of the first expanded interview episodes will feature my conversation with TEA’s new executive director, Lindsey Nelson. The text version of that interview appears on page 30 of this issue.
Finally, some episodes will take deep dives into projects and technology that we regularly feature here in the magazine. Some of these stories may span several episodes, in a serial-style format. We look forward to telling stories from The Twilight Saga: Midnight Ride (pictured above) and Ravinia’s Music Box Theater, among others, in upcoming episodes.
Ultimately each podcast connects back to the magazine, providing readers and listeners with more ways to engage with the industry.
