    Episode 22 • 40 years of i-D with Terry Jones • The Modernist • Pin-Up • Quarantimes

    Our first Podcast of 2021 is a special episode dedicated to i-D as it celebrates its 40th birthday.

    Jeremy Leslie talks to GQ editor Dylan Jones about his first job at i-D, then meets the magazine’s founder Terry Jones and his wife and collaborator Tricia.

    They discuss the start of Terry’s design career, working at Vogue, and the origins of i-D as a stapled zine, responding to what Terry saw on London’s streets as the liberation of the DIY punk years spilled over into new trends and tribes. We hear about the support the magazine received from Time Out’s Tony Elliott, its subsequent sale to Vice Media, and Terry’s ongoing work with the i-D archive.

    Jeremy also highlights recent issues of The Modernist, Pin-Up and Quarantimes.

    Recorded at the magCulture Shop, Jeremy Leslie introduces the latest Podcast, opening with magCulture updates and news.

    He's joined by James Hyman and Tory Turk to discuss their Hymag magazine archive – over 150,000 magazines collected together as the basis for a genre-defining digital database of content.

    The three start with a look at recent releases, including Interview, Racquet, Post and The Believer, before looking at Hymag’s crowdfunding campaign, a vital project to make sure the archive has a future.

    Jeremy also meets Oriane Leckert, Senior Outreach Lead, Publishing, Comics, and Journalism at Kickstarter to hear why the platform works so well for magazine launches. Oriane highlights some recent succesful campaigns and shares some tips for prospective fundraisers.

    Our back issue this time is nineties interiors mag Nest, a beautiful run of 26 issues that is about to be celebrated by a new book from Phaidon.

    Episode 20, July 2020 • Rick Poynor & Simon Esterson • Eye 100 • Émigré

    After a gap of a few months, the magCulture Podcast returns as the UK loosens the lockdown.

    The episode opens with an overview of recent magazines – including Barter Baby, Creative Review, Here and British Vogue – and general observations from Jeremy Leslie, before moving on to Eye.

    Recorded during the special one-day Every Eye Ever event at the magCulture Shop, we eavesdrop on part of a conversation between co-owner/art director Simon Esterson and founding editor Rick Poynor (left and right above). Standing in front of the complete set of 100 issues displayed at the Shop, the two highlight some of the themes and common factors that make an Eye front cover, refering to work by previous art directors Stephen Coates and Nick Bell as well as Esterson.

    Rick Poynor then joins Jeremy Leslie for a conversation about the 1990 origins of Eye and its application of a critical rather than reporting style of design writing. Poynor still writes for Eye, has just written a biography of David King, and teaches at Reading University.

    The back issue is US graphic design magazine Émigré, a unique project both about and of the late eighties/early nineties graphics scene, at the beginning of the Apple Macintosh and DTP revolution.

    Ricarda Messner from Sofa and Flaneur joins Jeremy Leslie at the magCulture Shop to talk magazines, and editor-in-chief of ZEITmagazin Christoph Amend updates us on his plans from Amsterdam.

    After a flick through new issues including Eyeyah!, Leslie, Fervour and Sandwich, Ricarda and Jeremy discuss the new issue of Sofa, as well as the current plans for the next Flaneur. Ricarda also talks about working with ZEITmagazin, before we hear from its editor-in-chief Christoph Amend about his magazine’s podcast and new launch plans.

    The back issue this time is nineties German business mag Econy, the precursor to today’s Brand Eins.
