About Thursday Review

Thursday Review is an online magazine covering national and regional politics, books, film and television, music and entertainment, food, social issues, art and more. Here is a description of some of our main features:

Road Show (currently on hiatus) is a weekly review of the presidential campaign and national politics as seen through the lens of contemporary media factors.  Originally conceived in 2006, Road Show was designed to be an analysis of the election cycle of 2007 and 2008, and covered the various Democratic and Republican debates, the caucuses and primaries, and media coverage of the election process.  It was rebooted in 2011 to cover the 2012 presidential election, and included coverage of the debates, as well as dispatches from the Republican National Convention in Tampa.

Retro Review is a feature in which our writers look back at some of the great movies, music, TV and pop culture phenomena of the 1970s, 80s and 90s with an eye toward their social or artistic relevance today. We encourage reader feedback and opinions on our reviews!

The Book Shelf and our Book Page are our book review and discussion forums. They include reviews of current and past books by Thursday Review contributors, as well as opinion and feedback by our readers.  Thursday Review also has departments for Food, Movies and Art.  Our Media & Journalism page includes long-form reviews of books about the press, documentaries and television news in general.  For a brief bio of each of our writers please follow the link to "Our Editors."   

Politics is our page dedicated to political discussions and analysis. These are generally essay-length pieces, but they can also include short articles and some book reviews.  Links to many past Road Show articles from 2012 can be found there.  Thursday Review encourages other points of view, and we accept comments and editorial responses from our readers and supporters. See our submission guidelines.
