The 1838 St Joseph Constitution

Greetings all, I want bring your attention to the podcast series I produced with Julian Chambliss called The Florida Constitutions Podcast. These podcasts were recorded at the 2017 Florida Conference of Historians in Tallahassee and they feature an interview with a different scholar about one of Florida's historic constitutions, including the current one. H-Florida is hosting this podcast.

I am posting a discussion about each episode.

Media Editor

Greetings all, 

This is Robert Cassanello. I am returning to H-Florida as Media Editor. It is my plan to create an accesible index to media projects on Florida History here at H-Florida. Over the years I have been working on a variety of media projects, websites, podcasts and films. And I know of others who are working in a similar capacity. I think H-Florida should be a hub where people can find these media projects easily.
