CRStal Radio


You already read it and now you can listen to it too!

CRStal Radio is the official podcast of the Canadian Review of Sociology, the flagship journal of the Canadian Sociological Association.

In each half-hour episode, Managing Editor Karen Stanbridge introduces you to three sociologists whose peer-reviewed article, research note, review essay, or shorter piece (like those that appear in the Committing Sociology section of each issue) is featured in the journal. Through their commentary, you get an overview of their work, but in their own words. Which beats an abstract every time.

Hear the people behind the research, the sociologists behind the data.

Tune into CRStal Radio. And listen.
