I started that way in the beginning and deleted all of that because the only way Wordpress would let me do it is by having categories (aka series) for each author name. Then, every time I need to choose series for each episode, I'm going to have to scroll through a hundred author names. . . . such a drag. There is a great search bar, so I've been counting on people to use the search bar for authors. . . . Uhm. Those are my thoughts but maybe I'm missing some functionality or there's an add-on I can download to make authors. Let me know if you know of one and I'll think on it as well
