Riposte magazine founder Danielle Pender joins Jeremy Leslie at the magCulture Shop, we hear an excerpt from our recent magCulture Meets The Modernist event, and take a quick look back at football mag Mundial.
Danielle and Jeremy share a few finds from the magCulture shelves—Meantime, Now You Know, The Fence and The Plant—before sitting down to talk about the brand new 13th issue of Riposte. Danielle explains how after the pandemic stymied the issue, writing a book of short stories over lockdown inspired her to get her magazine back on track. Hear about the redesign of the issue, its political focus, and the difference between the failed commercialisation of feminism platforms such as The Wing and the more authentic voices of others like Polyester. (Interview recorded November 2021).
MagCulture Meets The Modernist took place back in Septmeber, marking the magazine’s 40th issue. Co-founder Eddy Rhead discusses its growth and the addition of their Manchester gallery/events space.
A quick nod to Mundial ends the episode.
