We would need this entire podcast
to properly introduce our guest today on “Lying on the Beach.” For the last 40
years, Ray Elman, currently founding Editor in Chief of Inspicio, has been at
the forefront of both the editorial and art worlds. Podcast Co-hosts, Steve
Greenberg, a TV personality, and Lois Whitman-Hess, a PR counselor, interviewed
Ray, about the state of journalism and why it’s not getting the respect it so

Inspicio provides in-depth, high-quality insights into all arts disciplines with a focus on Miami and South Florida. The publication is famous for its video interviewing technique and for mixing famous authors with student writers.
Elman also co-founded Provincetown Arts magazine and Cincinnati Arts magazine. Ray was also a pioneer in the digital communication industry, first as the National Director of Creative Services at Coopers & Lybrand (now PricewaterhouseCoopers) and as the co-founder of Streamline Communications, which is now a public company called Bridgeline Digital. He was also a founder of Cambria Interactive at Cambria Consulting.
addition, Elman has sustained a successful life-time career as
a visual artist. Four of his large
scale mixed-media portraits (Pulitzer Prize recipients Stanley
Kunitz, Jhumpa Lahiri, Alan Dugan, & U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky) are
included in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian National Portrait
Gallery. His work is exhibited in museums, galleries and private collections
all over the world.
