Podcast between-isode: another peek behind the editing curtain

This episode of the Right Angels and Polo Bears podcast is a sort of between-isode update of what’s been going on at Adrienne’s desk, to keep you satisfied while she does more research for an in-depth piece on editing disturbing subject matter. I first posted piece on the topic on the Copyediting.com blog. It’s generated a lot of thoughtful discussion and some response-blogs by colleagues. This is an issue that affects all of us, often as a blindside, so we feel it deserves a closer look.

So, while she’s working on that, take another peek behind the editing curtain.

Mentioned in this episode:


Hey, she forgot to mention attending panel discussion hosted by RGD (registered graphic designers’ association). We are not designers, but we work with them on nearly every job and find that connecting with them and learning how and what they think helps us communicate with them better. Always a fascinating event.
